PEEEEP! PEEEEP! PEEEEEEEEEEP! It's all over here in Kolkata as England become the first team from the Group to qualify for the Round of 16. England got an early lead 3-0 lead which looked unreachable through Brewster, Foden and Sancho. Mexico hit back in the second half after a brace from Diego Lainez. It looked like Mexico would eventually get the equaliser, but England defended well towards the final minutes and ensured the three points in what has been a pulsating Group F Encounter in Kolkata.

England have 6 points from 2 games while Mexico have just a single point from as many games.

England will face Iraq in a bid to top the group in Kolkata at 8 PM on 14th October while Mexico travel to Guwahati to play an important Encounter against Chile in Guwahati at 8 PM on the same day. 

That's it from Sportskeeda for this match. It is Sayak signing off! Thanks for tuning in to our Live Coverage!

HALF TIME : England 1-0 Mexico

England looked the better team so far as Brewster missed a sitter earlier in the half but made up for it by scoring a beast of a free-kick to give England a 1-0 lead. Mexico showed glimpses of getting back into the game but all of their chances were kept off by the English Defense. Mexico are very much in this game and there is everything to play for in the second half. Join us after the break in 10 minutes for the Second Half of the Group F Encounter in Kolkata.

Hello and welcome to our live coverage of the FIFA U17 World Cup 2017.

Today, we have England taking on Mexico in a crucial Group F encounter.

England put four past Chile the last time they took to the field, while Mexico were held to a 1-1 draw by Asian champions Iraq in their first group match, therefore the result of the match today will have a huge bearing on who qualifies from the Group of Death into the knockout stages.

Jadon Sancho will look to add to his two goals against Chile and the Borussia Dortmund sensation has already grabbed the eyeballs at the 2017 FIFA U17 World Cup. Sancho aside, his teammates also looked pretty impressive with Chelsea's George McEachren impressing the watching Kolkata fans.

The match kicks off at 5 pm Indian Standard Time at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata.
