A first for England in 51 years

A first for England in 51 years

These are the History Boys.

Calvert-Lewin, who wrote his name into the history books with the victor in England's 1-0 victory over Venezuela, played 346 minutes for Everton during the last campaign, with only Bournemouth's Lewis Cook - the captain - appearing more often with 431 minutes.

It was an unbelievable save from Freddie Woodman from the penalty.

But it was the Europeans who went a goal up in the 35th minute when Calvert-Lewin beat Farinez at the second time of asking, coolly tapping home the rebound after seeing his initial attempt kept out by the excellent goalkeeper.

Venezuela were forced to take pop shots form distance but Woodman proved more than a match for the efforts.

Venezuela's Ronaldo Lucena hit the post with a long-range free-kick in the first-half, while England's Josh Onomah saw a powerful strike hit the underside of the bar after the break.

After the match, England forward Dominic Solanke, due to join Liverpool from Chelsea on 1 July, was awarded the Golden Ball given to the player of the tournament.

Analysts believed that stocks fell less - 2.517 million barrels, or 0.48 percent - to 513.783 million barrels. Russia's Rosneft CEO Igor Sechin also said the market can not stabilize unless all producers cut output.

Previous winners of the accolade include Diego Maradona, Lionel Messi, Luis Figo, Paul Pogba and Sergio Aguero.

Italy's Riccardo Orsolini claimed the Golden Shoe award after scoring five goals in the tournament before losing to England in the semi-final.

Unlike their English counterparts, most members of the Venezuela squad are from cash-strapped clubs that, just like the rest of the country, have been affected by widespread shortages, triple-digit inflation and rampant crime.

The Everton striker made the difference, though goalkeeper Freddie Woodman saved a second-half penalty from Adalberto Penaranda as the South Americans piled on the pressure in an open and entertaining clash in which both teams hit the woodwork.

England defender Jake Clarke-Salter was ruled to have brought down Penaranda inside the area, a decision confirmed by the video assistant referee, but Woodman produced a brilliant one-handed save to keep out Penaranda's spot-kick.

"It is hard to put into words what that feeling was like when the referee blew the final whistle".
