67' - England make their first change as Angel Gomes comes on for Callum Hudson-Odoi, who has had an excellent game apart from scoring England's first. The Chelsea youngster's link-up play with Sancho has been at the heart of some of England's finer moments of the game.

There's no coming back for Chile from here. They are trailing by three goals against a superior side. It's all about the losing margin now for Chile as they look to limit the damage. England are hungry for more goals as they are still creating chances.

Jadon Sancho nets his 14th international goal in his 17th international appearance, after the otherwise excellent Borquez fails to parry away a cross from Brewster and the Borussia Dortmund youngster makes no mistake from the close range.

45' - HT Chile 0 England 1  

England end the half strongly, with Jadon Sancho registering a shot on target, although it was saved by Borquez at full stretch. Chile have found it hard to cope with the runners-up of the UEFA U-17 European championships, and have poor finishing from the Englishmen and excellent goalkeeping from Borquez to thank for still keeping them in the game.

37' - The losing CONMEBOL finalist seem to have finally settled down, as they sniff around the goal. Guerrero's long-range shot doesn't trouble Anderson but Mesias' header after two back-to-back corners is the closest Chile have come to scoring.

17:44 (IST)

The game has slowed a bit. Maybe it's the humidity and also Chile have improved quite a bit. There were few encouraging runs from the Chile players but it should happen more freequently.

24' - Chile's lapses in concentration almost cost them dearly as Foden sets up Sancho on the left edge of the eighteen yard box, but the Englishman can only win a corner.

Well, it's just a matter of time before England find another goal. They are creating chance after chance and it looks like the Chile team have no clue on how to stop the Young Lions. Chile's players need to get their act together as soon as possible.

England are clearly the dominating side so far. They are finding plenty of space in the midfield and Jadon Sancho is constantly receiving threatening balls on the left flank. Chile need to up the ante.
