Predictions and standings

Let’s Go through the predictions before the FIFA U17 World Cup Match Schedule 2017 begins. Judged by the recent performances, the main focus will definitely be on sides like Brazil, France, Germany, Spain, and England.

Brazil has a relatively easier set of opponents in their group in the form of Japan, Turkey and Ghana. It can be easily surmised that they will inevitably be one of the two teams proceeding to the round of 16. Germany too has been listed under the group C with New Zealand, Iraq, Chile and looks like an easy picking for the round of 16. Chile will make sure they end up being the second best from the group. Group D will actually be quite a tantalising run and it should be interesting to watch who ends up in the round of 16.

Although, North Korea certainly will try to leave a prominent mark behind. In Group E France will have to be accompanied by either Iran or Colombia to reach the round of 16. Group F to has quite an interesting order of the list, and it will be hard to predict whether England or Mexico will be the top picking of the group. Now off to the Group A with the hosting nation – India will face an immensely difficult challenge against Spain and Paraguay. However, if India can make it past Paraguay then they have a rather optimistic chance of qualifying for the Round of 16.

These are the best goals given in the last FIFA under 17 tournaments, 2015.

10 goals: Victor Osimhen
4 goals: Johannes Eggestein
3 goals: Dante Rigo, Sidiki Maïga, Francisco Venegas, Kelechi Nwakali, Samuel Chukwueze, Fyodor Chalov
