The England Under 17s team won the Under 17s World Cup today beating Spain 5-2 in the final in India. England were 0-2 down but came back to win 5-2. It's been a very good year for all of the different England teams. Highlights of the final here http://bbc.co.uk/sport/football/41788830

Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland and even Italy have all failed to qualify for the World Cup. It will be the first World Cup without Italy since 1958. After 20 years of playing for Italy Gianluigi Buffon retired from international football. Italy were unlucky to have been in the same group as Spain and then being drawn against Sweden in the playoffs. Some big surprises with the teams that are going to be missing this World Cup Italy, Netherlands, Chile, USA and Ivory Coast. Only 2 more teams left to qualify then we will know the full 32. England tonight and last Friday getting 2 draws against the current 2 best teams in the world Germany and Brazil is not bad. It's better than what most people thought we would get.

The World Cup groups draw is happening this Friday afternoon. It starts at 3pm our time and will be on BBC Two and Sky Sports. It's very important that England get a good draw because we have badly underperformed in the last 2 World Cups. Don't know why they have got him to do it but Gary Linekar will be in Moscow conducting the draw with millions of people watching. A Russian sports journalist called Maria Komandnaya will be conducting it with him. This is her.

The brand new UEFA Nations League starts later this year. A lot of people still know nothing about it. It's a new competition and will mean a lot less friendly matches for all European teams. Sky Sports won the rights to show all England matches for this so none will be on the BBC or ITV. The draw for this happens next Wednesday on Sky Sports. England are in League A and Pot 2 and will be drawn into a group with 2 other of the best European teams. It's quite complicated to understand everything about it here is everything to know http://www.uefa.com/community/news/newsid=2079553.html

The draw for the new UEFA Nations League was made today. England are in League A Group 4 with Spain and Croatia and will play 4 games against them 2 home and 2 away in September, October and November 2018. England's fixtures are 8th September home against Spain, 12th October away against Croatia, 15th October away against Spain and 18th November home against Croatia. If England win the group we will qualify for the semi finals and then either the third place play-off or the final to be played in June 2019. If England finish bottom of the group we will be relegated to League B. Some of this competition will be part of qualifying for Euro 2020. This is everything about it and shows which league every team is in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/2018%E2%8 ... ons_League This is the new trophy that was unveiled today.
