Kolkata: Spain U17 Head Coach Santiago Denia seemed to be destroyed by a dumbfounding performance by England U17 team as he claimed he was heartbroken after such a humiliating defeat in the final of FIFA U17 World Cup at Kolkata.

Spain was thumped by a 2-5 scoreline by England in the final of the FIFA U-17 World Cup 2017. "I am heartbroken. I am very proud of the players, proud of the work in the past 2 years. The efforts go beyond the performance of the final. We won the Euros and are the runner-up in the World Cup. I'm very proud of the team," said Denia, who also identified Manchester City starlet Phil Foden as the player that threatened his team the most.

"England utilised the left wing with Foden cutting in from the right. We had prepared the game not only for the wings but also for the central midfielders. We knew they have good players not only on the wings but overall. Foden was cutting inside and created problems," said Denia. "He is a great player and has a great future ahead. We tried to defend against him as a team. He played great."

"Our forwards played very well for first 40 minutes scoring two goals. England played well overall. They made adjustments perfectly. The message at half-time was to stay forward. They are a very good side and played better than us. Congratulations to them."
