It'll be pass-and-move versus run-and-shoot, tiki-taka versus an African racing auto when Spain face Mali in the U-17 World Cup semi-final in Navi Mumbai on Wednesday. It was the Spanish that took the lead via a penalty as Cesar Gelabert brought down in the box. Abel Ruiz made no mistake in clinching the opener as he hit the middle of the net, leaving goalkeeper Youssouf Koita helpless. This was the end of proceedings in the first half as the boys in red walked off at the half-time whistle on a comfortable two-goal cushion.
Brewster goals came in the 10th, 39th and 77th minutes.
