"It's what you dream of as a kid, playing for your country and winning a World Cup", Calvert-Lewin said.

"We've only had St George's [National Football Centre] for five years or so and we are starting to see some real progress in the junior teams and ultimately the aim is to get them through to the seniors".

Considering his displays at the Under-20 World Cup many think Chelsea have made a awful mistake in failing to convince him to stay - while on the flip side Liverpool have conducted an astute bit of business.

England winning its first Under-20 title indicates there is talent coming through the youth ranks, especially as some other eligible players were not in South Korea because they have already been promoted to the senior team or are preparing for the Under-21 European Championship.

England, which last won the World Cup in 1966, has failed to add to that title, notably losing to West Germany in a penalty shootout in a semifinal in 1990.

And the world of football has praised Simpson, who was Carlisle's manager between 2003-6 with everybody from Andy Shearer to former team mates sending messages of congratulations.

Venezuela then enjoyed a strong spell and Ronaldo Lucena almost broke the deadlock with an ambitious free kick from 45 yards out, catching Woodman off guard, only to see his shot thud into the left upright.

Venezuela came even closer moments later.

Calvert-Lewin saw his header saved by Farinez in the 32nd, but was able to find the back of the net two minutes later.

His powerful first-time shot was pushed out by goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez but the Everton forward pounced to drive in the loose ball.

Kane is set to lead England in their next game - a friendly in France on Tuesday.

Venezuela missed a chance to equalise when England keeper Freddie Woodman saved a 74th-minute Adalberto Penaranda penalty.

"I sat down with my dad and told him I wanted to get it and I wanted to win the World Cup, but it seemed so far away".
