England Under-17 World Cup hero Rhian Brewster has returned to his roots after arriving back in the UK following his India exploits.

The Liverpool striker received the golden boot at the Under 17 World Cup after scoring nine goals during the competition, the last of which came in the final 5-2 victory over Spain.

And on returning home, Brewster went for a wander through the streets of Chadwell Heath, the area of east London where he grew up.

Kitted out in full England tracksuit and decked out in his gold medal, the Liverpool forward posted a message of thanks along with his Tweet.

'Just landed back in the UK as a world champion!' he tweeted. 'Thanks to all the @England and @LFC fans for their support throughout the tournament!' 

Brewster and his team-mates touched down on Monday after flying back from India, and the 17-year-old told reporters that the achievement had yet to hit home.

'I don't think it has sunk in yet,' Brewster said to Sky Sports News. 'I'm happy to be home, it has been a long month but a great month for us.

'The golden boot is an amazing achievement for me personally but an even bigger achievement winning the World Cup. We're still only 17, we're still young and we still have work to do. We're still learning. That's what we can do now.

'I think playing in front of that many fans, 66,000, shows we can play and it doesn't really faze us. I think playing in these kind of tournaments help a lot. It's the exposure, just an amazing experience.
