Paul Simpson’s team edged out Venezuela in a keenly contested final to get their hands on the prize.
Dominic Calvert-Lewin netted the only goal of the game 10 minutes before half-time, with that effort enough to secure a first FIFA trophy since 1966.
He was aided by the efforts of goalkeeper Freddie Woodman in the second-half, as he saved a late penalty, but one composed finish proved to be enough.
Calvert-Lewin held his nerve after seeing his initial effort kept out to calmly roll the loose ball home.
The experience as a whole – not just his exploits in the final – should serve the 20-year-old well as he prepares to return to Everton and seek more Premier League minutes in 2017-18.
