Nigeria, with its impressive record in this age group, will once again be a serious competitor. But if they want to live up to expectations, they need to improve their performance at this year’s U17 Africa Cup of Nations, where they could only achieve fourth place. After not qualifying for the final edition in India two years ago, the Golden Eaglets are keen to remember why they are the most successful team in the history of the competition, with eight finals and five titles.
The Netherlands is also confident after retaining their European title this year. With a cadre with a large contingent born outside the country, the Europeans hope the mix can help them to improve on their best-ever third-place finish in 2005.
Although Brazil does not have a particularly good continental championship, it has been well prepared in recent months. That coupled with the arrival of some new faces makes the home fans dream of a fourth world title in this category.
