Paul Simpson praised his England team after they won the Under-20 World Cup, but said it was “too early” to call them the next golden generation.
England beat Venezuela 1-0 in Sunday’s final, to win the country’s biggest international title since 1966.
It was England’s first appearance in the final of a global tournament since their World Cup victory 51 years ago.
“We don’t need anymore songs talking about 50 years of hurt,” said Simpson, referencing the song Three Lions
Everton forward Dominic Calvert-Lewin’s first-half goal was enough for victory in South Korea, with Newcastle goalkeeper Freddie Woodman making a second-half penalty save to preserve the lead.
Asked if the players were the next golden generation, Simpson told BBC Sport: “It is too early for that, we could sit and make all sorts of bold statements.
“Let’s enjoy what we have done, it is a wonderful achievement from them. We are the world champions at under-20 level which isn’t easy.
He added: “This will be an incredible experience for them to take forward whatever they go on to do. They will remember this for the rest of their lives and get confidence from this and hopefully the whole of the country can enjoy their achievements.”
