English youths today celebrated toppling Prime Minister Theresa May’s parliamentary majority by winning the under-20s World Cup.
A goal from Everton’s Dominic Calvert-Lewin was enough to secure a 1-0 win over Venezuela, whose celebrity fans ironically include Jeremy Corbyn.
The Labour leader’s inspiring anti-austerity message was integral to a huge turnout of young voters at Thursday’s General Election, called by May in expectation of a landslide.
While the movement was sufficient to result in a shock surge of support for Labour, it has left Corbyn with mixed feelings.

“To be honest, I thought Lookman was the name of a Stormzy tune.”
