sport news How are England's Under-17 World Cup winners from 2017 getting on? 

Jadon Sancho, Callum Hudson-Odoi and Phil Foden are three young Englishmen enjoying excellent seasons for their clubs.

What they have in common is that all three were part of the England squad that won the FIFA Under 17 World Cup during a memorable tournament in India back in 2017.

After topping a group that contained Iraq, Mexico and Chile with three wins from three, Steve Cooper's Young Lions beat Japan on penalties in the last-16 before thrashing the United States 4-1 in the quarter-finals.

There then followed a memorable semi-final in which Rhian Brewster netted a hat-trick in a 3-1 win over Brazil, before a thrilling final in Kolkata.

England trailed Spain 2-0 after half-an-hour and all seemed lost, but they staged an incredible fightback to win 5-2, with goals from Brewster, Morgan Gibbs White, Foden (2) and Marc Guehi.

With Foden winning the Golden Ball for the tournament's best player and Brewster the Golden Boot for leading scorer, there was a real buzz about this England team.

Two-and-a-half years on, it's clear the World Cup win has served as a springboard for some of the players, while for others the progress has been less spectacular.

Sportsmail takes a look at where England's victorious squad are now.

Starting line-up in the final

Curtis Anderson

England's goalkeeper in India, who scored a penalty against Japan in the last-16, moved from Manchester City's academy to North American second tier side Charlotte Independence in March 2019 but left six months later after 10 appearances. 

Has been training in recent weeks with Scottish Premiership side Hibernian on trial as he searches for a new club.

Steven Sessegnon

While twin brother Ryan left Fulham to join Tottenham, Steven has been appearing increasingly regularly in Scott Parker's side in the Championship this season. 

The right-back, who is an England Under 21 international now, featured more regularly at the start of the season but could yet have a role in their Premier League promotion push.

Joel Latibeaudiere

England's captain in 2017 remains in the Manchester City academy but is currently on loan with Dutch side FC Twente for the season.

Playing at right-back, he has made five appearances so far in the Eredivisie and some additional ones in cup competitions. Latibeaudiere hasn't yet featured for City's first team.

Marc Guehi

The centre-back has just joined Championship side Swansea on loan from Chelsea and made his debut in their 2-0 defeat at Stoke City on Saturday.

The England under-21 international did play for Frank Lampard's side in Carabao Cup games against Grimsby and earlier in the season but has been loaned out for experience.

Jonathan Panzo

Panzo made the move from Chelsea's academy to Monaco a few months after the World Cup triumph and though he's made a couple of first-team appearances in Ligue 1, game time has been at a premium. 

That explains why left-back Panzo is currently on loan at Belgian club Cercle Bruges, where he is playing regularly in the top flight there.

Tashan Oakley-Boothe

The 19-year-old plays regularly for Tottenham's Under 23 team in the Premier League 2 competition and has also featured this season in the UEFA Youth League and the EFL Trophy. 

Oakley-Boothe made his senior debut for Spurs in the League Cup against Barnsley in September 2017 but hasn't been in the first team since.

George McEachran

It's a similar position for McEachran at Chelsea as he plays regularly for their Under 23 side and also for the Under 21s in the EFL Trophy. 

McEachran has yet to make a first team appearance for Chelsea.

Phil Foden

Foden, 19, has long been generating plenty of excitement at Manchester City and Pep Guardiola is offering him more and more first-team opportunities. Foden invariably impresses, whether in the Premier League or one of the cup competitions. 

He played in 26 matches for City last season and is on course to exceed that number this time. Foden already has two Premier League, one FA Cup and two winners medals in his collection and it is expected that a stellar career for both club and country (he is an England under-21 regular) awaits him.

Morgan Gibbs-White

The midfielder was already playing for Wolves' first team when he won the World Cup in 2017 and has continued to play a part at Molineux. 

Gibbs-White played often last season as they made their return to the Premier League but has featured less often this season
