England are FIFA U-20 World Cup Champions…with 5 Players of Nigerian Descent

 

 

An England U-20 team parading 5 players of Nigerian descent (Fikayo Tomori, Josh Onomah, Ademola Lookman, Sheyi Ojo & Ovie Ejaria) emerged victorious in Suwon today as Dominic Calvert-Lewin‘s first-half strike secured Under-20 World Cup glory.

Calvert-Lewin broke the deadlock 10 minutes before half-time. Then Adalberto Penaranda passed up a chance to equalize for Venezuela in the 74th minute as goalkeeper Freddie Woodman parried his effort and England held firm in a nervy finish to be crowned world champions at Under-20 level for the first time and the first English team since 1966 to claim a World Cup trophy.
