England youngsters into World Cup semis

England youngsters into World Cup semis

"I thought our team was ready to step up to the challenge and in that first 20 minutes we were so tentative, and tentative in simple situations", Hackworth said. The young striker has scored twice in the current competition and enjoys a professional contract with Atlanta United.

England will be looking to continue their winning run at the FIFA U-17 World Cup when they take on USA in the quarterfinals in Kochi on Saturday.

"Expect a tremendous game", the 47-year-old said.Much of the coach's expectations stem from a sharp competitive nature of the sides and he believes a US-England match never fails to entertain.The US, it would seem, have a greater claim to fame in the U-17 World Cup. Chris Gloster and Taylor Booth replaced Sergino Dest and the suspended Chris Goslin. Brewster completed his hat-trick when Dest brought him down inside the penalty box that not only resulted in a spot kick but also saw the US defender given marching orders.

Tashan Oakley-Boothe's effort from outside the box in the fifth minute won a round of applause from the England fans in the stands, though USA goalkeeper Justin Garces had it under control. The youngster has been consistently scoring for Liverpool's youth teams since joining at age 15, and at the Fifa U-17 World Cup he's been in fine form too.

After advancing from the group stage with three wins from three, Steve Cooper's side needed a penalty shootout to get past Japan in the last-16 and set up a quarter-final meeting with USA in Goa today (Saturday).

Garces made a left-handed save to deny Brewster in the 16th. Yet, when the quarterfinal kicked off in front of a capacity crowd at Fatorda, it was wild and open, with nothing suggesting that they had known each other's strengths, or weakness.

James Sands' turnover near midfield led to the second goal.

Sargent hit the bar with a right footed shot in the 23rd minute and two minutes later, Ayo Akinola was denied by the crossbar.
