After 48 games, the FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019 ™ is nearing its peak on Thursday, when the semi-finals will be played in Brasilia (Gama). Three of the four teams in action at the Estadio Bezerrao have already won the competition.
In the first match of the day, Mexico faces the reigning Dutch European champions who have improved over the tournament, thanks largely to the brilliance of Sontje Hansen, the tournament’s top scorer with six goals. The two-time U-17 World Champion of 2005 and 2011 is confident that the Mexicans won 2-1 against Oranje two months ago in a friendly tournament in Europe. Bruce El Mesmari scored both goals.
In the evenings, host Brazil has the support of the crowd against France and its fearsome attack, which scored 17 goals in five games. The Brazilians are aiming for a fourth world title in the age group to celebrate their victories in 1997, 1999 and 2003. Meanwhile, the French want to repeat their success in 2001. At the top of their challenge is Adil Aouchiche, who has delivered six assists to date, more than anyone else in Brazil 2019.
France captain Lucien Agoume is suspended while Brazil will benefit from the return of Diego, who has survived the quarter-finals and has scored twice in this tournament so far.
