FIFA U17 Final will be Uruguay v Mexico as Germany and Brazil eliminated

Uruguay beat arch-rivals Brazil 3-0 to reach their first-ever FIFA U-17 final, where they will meet hosts Mexico came from a goal down to beat Germany 3-2.

All three goals from Uruguay came from the lightning-quick counter-attack of the Celeste, who beat Brazil in an ill-tempered match that saw seven yellow cards brandished by the referee.

Mexico's 3-2 defeat of Germany was the first-ever win by Mexico at any level against Germany and came courtesy of an overhead kick of a half cleared corner - which scored in the 90th minute in off the far post.
