Suwon: England edged past Venezuela 1-0 in a thrilling Federation Internationale de Football Association U-20 World Cup final thanks to a first-half strike from Dominic Calvert-Lewin at the Suwon World Cup Stadium here on Sunday.

England's forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin celebrates his goal during the U-20 World Cup final match between England and Venezuela in Suwon.

Everton striker Dominic Calvert-Lewin has expressed his delight after scoring the goal that clinched U20 World Cup glory for England.

Venezuela were awarded a penalty in the 74th minute but England goalkeeper, Freddie Woodman.

Barcelona forward Messi was in the Argentina team that won the 2005 event (then called the FIFA World Youth Championship), while Portuguese great Figo inspired his country to victory in the 1989 and 1991 competitions.

Chelsea's website made no mention of Dominic Solanke in their report on England's victory in the Under-20 World Cup final, despite the teenager being a Blues player.

They had the lion's share of the chances in South Korea - Josh Onomah hitting the crossbar.

Paul Simpson's heroes played a total of 1,094 Premier League minutes between them last season - the equivalent to about 12 full matches. "We've waited 51 years to be able to say that again as an England team".

As they prepare to return to their respective clubs, the question is whether their performances will translate into first-team involvement?

Six minutes into the second half, Venezuela, a country that has never appeared at the senior World Cup, should have drawn level. "They played with their heart and dignity but could not get the win". It was an incredible moment'.

After the break, Woodman did well to come off his line and foil Sergio Cordova after a superb pass from substitute Yeferson Soteldo.

Gareth Southgate led the praise for the England Under-20 team following their World Cup triumph.

England defender Jake Clarke-Salter was ruled to have brought down Penaranda inside the area, a decision confirmed by the video assistant referee.

Penaranda got up to take the spot-kick only to see his effort down the middle saved as the diving Woodman flung a hand behind him, and England held out for their long-awaited World Cup win.
