Spain meet England in U-17 World Cup final

Brazil's Gabriel Brazao

Spain edged Mali 1-0 the only time the teams met before (1997).

A penalty and a great finish by Abel Ruiz saw Spain getting the edge over a physical Mali side.

Spain's Real Madrid star defender Sergio Ramos will be watching the colts take on England in the Federation Internationale de Football Association U-17 World Cup final on Saturday here, sources close to the team management said.

Abel Ruiz found the net twice followed by a Ferran Torres goal as Mali's late strike fell short of booking them a place in the finale. But Mali goalkeeper Youssouf Koita pulled off a superb diving save. After several attempts on goal from both teams, Gelabert was fouled in the box when his deft turn drew a foul from Abdoulaye Diaby to give Spain a penalty. This was the end of proceedings in the first half as the boys in red walked off at the half-time whistle on a comfortable two-goal cushion.

Rhian Brewster broke the deadlock in the 10th minute for England when he was picked out inside the area with a neat floated pass from Callum Hudson-Odoi.

She added that the story was "factually wrong" and that it was an attempt to "please the I&B ministry and the Bots Janata Party". The BJP has rubbished the allegation, saying Jay Shah's business was perfectly legitimate and legal.

The FC Barcelona starlet doubled the lead in the 43rd minute which saw Cesar Gelabert provide a pivotal ball to Ruiz who released a grounded shot from outside the box. Although the video replays clearly showed that the ball had crossed the line but there was no goal line technology implemented yet to reconsider the decision by the referee.

Torres then added a third goal when he finished off Mohamed Moukliss's low cross.

Torres, who had a quiet game, headed in Spain's third from a Sergio Gómez cross that came from the left.

Mali have been undefeated in the tournament thus far, and even beat African rivals Ghana in their previous match - just like they did in the finals of the African U-17 Cup of Nations.

Abbas Chamanian's boys defeated Mexico 2-1 in Round of 16 to make history by advancing to the World Cup quarter-final for the first time. Lassana N'Diaye scored a consolation goal for Mali in the 74th minute.
