England U17s made it three wins out of three games this week, after an impressive 3-1 victory over Brazil in Telford.
It took the Young Lions just six minutes to break the deadlock, when Alex Mighten had too much for his marker in the area before finishing well with a low drive to give England a perfect start.
The lead only lasted six minutes though, as Antonio Fiahlo de Carvalho Neto scrambled home after England hadn’t managed to clear a Brazilian corner.
But England regained the lead just before the break when a slick passing move ended with Haydon Roberts breaking into the box and picking out Sam Greenwood, who calmly finished to make it 2-1.
Brazil will feel they should have levelled again, but they let England off the hook seconds before half time as captain Reinier Jesus Carvalho mishit his shot from six yards.
They were punished five minutes after the restart too, as Morgan Rogers broke clear to smash a shot through the goalkeeper’s legs to make it 3-1 and seal a memorable win for Cooper’s side to end a positive week as they continue to prepare for next March's Euro elite round.
