Simpson led his side to victory over Venezuela in Sunday's final in South Korea, Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin with the only goal while Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman saved Adalberto Penaranda's second-half penalty.

As the team returned home to Birmingham Airport, Simpson reflected on "a wonderful few months" since stepping...
