The team reached the quarter-finals of the tournament having advanced from a tough group which included South Africa, Australia, and hosts Brazil.

Although Paul Harrison’s side got off to a slow start with a 5-3 defeat against Brazil, England went on to win their next two games and qualify for the last eight.

Jackson, who plays for Emerson Park Cerebral Palsy Spurs FC, coached by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation, featured in the final group game as the Three Lions thrashed South Africa 4-0.

Unfortunately, England were beaten by the same scoreline on Wednesday night by Ukraine – no disgrace considering the Eastern Europeans are reigning World, European and Olympic champions.

Although Jackson will not be returning to these shores with a World Championship gold medal, he and his EPCP Spurs FC team-mates have been invited to visit Parliament on Tuesday November 27, and they will be accompanied by one of our senior first-team players.
