Suwon [South Korea], June 11 (ANI): England edged past Venezuela 1-0 in a thrilling FIFA U-20 World Cup final thanks to a first-half strike from Dominic Calvert-Lewin at the Suwon World Cup Stadium here on Sunday. Calvert-Lewin scored the winning goal in the 35th minute for England when he finished from close range after his initial effort was blocked by Wuilker Farinez, but the rebound fell into the path of the Everton forward and he made no mistake with his second chance. Freddie Woodman, England goalkeeper, made two vital saves in the second half. The first was a one-on-one opportunity for Sergio Cordova created by Yeferson Soteldo, and the second from the penalty spot from Adalberto Penaranda. The match was evenly contested throughout, with both sides hitting the woodwork, but it was England's evening in the end, as the Young Lions held on to become U-20 World Cup champions for the first time.
