9 Barca players will participate. Noah Darvich for Germany and Marc Guiu, Pau Prim, Héctor Fort, Pau Cubarsí, Andrés Cuenca, Marc Bernal, Quim Junyent and Juan Hernández for Spain.
Besides them some other interesting players, especially in that Brazil team. Likes of Rayan, Kaua Elias and Estevao Willian "Messinho" were all already linked to Barca. And then ofc Echeverri from Argentina. @soul24rage Heard good things about Quedraogo too so look forward to see him play.
Clearly other players will make a name for themselves as well as it always happens in these tournaments.
The U17 World Cup in Indonesia kicks off on Friday, Nov. 10, with Panama against Morocco and host Indonesia versus Ecuador. The U17 World Cup has been the stepping-stone for the careers of many great [...]
I get it. Lot of "lost generations" who never get a chance to play in this tournament if only every 4 years. Bi-annual tournaments would be better though.
Also don't quite like this new system with mini tournaments.
From 2024 the tournament will take place annually and will have 48 participating teams divided into 4 'mini-tournaments' of 12 teams each divided into 3 groups of 4 with the winners and best runner up qualifying to the MT semi-finals and the 2 winners qualifying to the final. The winner of each MT would qualify to a 'final four' tournament with 2 semi-finals, a third place match and a final to decide the FIFA U17 World Champions.
I understand FIFA wants to give a chance to players from less developed football countries against top teams but don't think there are 48 teams worthy to compete in "real" World Cup let alone in this age group. Affraid this will lead to teams like Brazil trash Vanuatu 12-0 or something which doesn't really benefit anyone.
