Former Norwich City reserve and youth-team chief Keith Webb can look forward to being part of the 2016 Paralympics in Brazil.

His England cerebral palsy squad thumped USA 10-0 this afternoon to ensure that they will finish at least sixth in this summer's world championships. Jake Brown (2), Ollie Nugent (2), James Blackwell (2), Matt Crossen, Michael Barker, Jack Rutter and an own goal sealed the Three Lions' impressive victory. They take on Ireland tomorrow in a fifth-placed play-off with both teams already guaranteed of a place in Rio thanks to securing a top-seven slot.
