Brewster hat-trick takes England past USA in FIFA U-17 World Cup Quarter-final

The impressive run by U.S. Under-17 Men's National Team at the 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup came to an end in the Quarterfinal after a 4-1 loss to 2017 UEFA U-17 runners-up England. Josh Sargent's strike gave the USA hope late in the game and also tied him with Freddy Adu as the USA's leading all-time scorer in youth World Cups with seven goals.

A quick-fire brace from England's Rhian Brewster midway through the first half gave the USA a mountain to climb, and the U.S. didn't shy away from the challenge. Led by Sargent, Tim Weah and Ayo Akinola up top, the USA went about carving out numerous opportunities to get back in the game either through possession or, more often, in transition, where the team's lightning quick counters gave the England defense all it could handle.
