Jürgen Klopp sent his congratulations to Liverpool's new world champion after Rhian Brewster helped inspire England to U17 World Cup glory.

The Young Lions were set to go in at half-time of Saturday’s final in Kolkata two goals down to Spain - until, that was, Brewster pulled one back with a superb header just before the break.

That goal was the Reds’ striker’s eighth of the World Cup and proved to be the turning point in a quite remarkable game, as England went on to run out 5-2 winners.

And, speaking after his side had defeated Huddersfield Town 3-0 at Anfield on the same afternoon, Klopp spoke of his pride at hearing of more heroics from Brewster, who also claimed the tournament’s golden boot for his impressive haul.

“Unbelievable. Rhian, congratulations from Liverpool! It’s obviously a good day,” the boss told Liverpoolfc.com.

“You scored one or two or three? Only one?! Congratulations, we are really proud. 

“Our best regards here from Liverpool, have a nice party, but no alcohol! Have a nice party with Coca-Cola and Fanta or whatever. See you soon.”
