FIFA U-17 World Cup record
Solomon Islands have never previously competed in the FIFA U-17 World Cup. The Melanesian nation has previously featured in FIFA Futsal and Beach Soccer World Cups.

The road to Brazil

Backed by strong home support, Solomon Islands enjoyed an impressive campaign to qualify for the world stage during September 2018. They hit 15 goals without reply in topping their group, with their three wins highlighted by a stunning 5-0 win over holders New Zealand. The Solomons then eased past Fiji 3-1 to qualify amid scenes of wild celebration, but failed to win their maiden U-16 Championship after a penalty shoot-out defeat against New Zealand in the decider.

The coach - Stanley Waita

A former long-serving national team midfielder, Stanley Waita featured in three FIFA World Cup™ qualifying campaigns for Solomon Islands, including the nation’s storied continental play-offs against Australia in 2005. Waita also enjo…

FIFA U-17 World Cup record This will be Paraguay’s fifth World Cup appearance at this level and third in a row.Their best showing to date, a quarter-final appearance, came on their debut at New Zealand 1999. At Trinidad and Tobago 2011 and Chile 2015, they failed to survive the group phase, while at India 2017 they bowed out in the round of 16.
The road to Brazil Los Guarani finished third at the South American U-17 Championship in Peru, where some courageous and defensively solid displays in the Hexagonal final phase proved key. The preceding group phase did yield good wins over Uruguay and Colombia, but also featured a high number of goals conceded. In the final phase, victory over Peru and draws with Uruguay, Chile and Ecuador made the difference.
The coach - Gustavo Morinigo Although he has overseen more U-17 international games than any other Paraguay coach, his career has been about much more than youth football. In 2014 …

FIFA U-17 World Cup history
The 2019 edition marks Haiti’s second appearance at the U-17 World Cup. Their debut came at Korea Republic 2007, when they failed to get past the group stage after recording a draw and two defeats.
The road to Brazil

Les Grenadiers performed outstandingly in the group stage of the Concacaf U-17 Championship, winning all three games and scoring 12 times, with El Salvador the only side able to breach their defence. After overcoming Dominican Republic in the Round of 16, they went on to beat Honduras 4-3 on penalties, following a 1-1 draw, in a dramatic quarter-final. This was enough to see them qualify for Brazil 2019, but the semi-finals were as far as they went due to a 1-0 loss to eventual winners Mexico in a tight encounter.

Fredler Christophe is the captain of Haiti’s U-17 teamNicknamed "Bijou" (Jewel) because of his skillsMidfielder is hoping to make a name for himself at Brazil 2019 One player hoping to live up to his nickname at Brazil 2019 over the next few weeks is Haiti captain Fredler Christophe, whose soubriquet of Bijou (Jewel) reflects his precious quality on the ball.
“Absolutely everyone calls me that. Everyone. But I like it,” Christophe told FIFA.com with a smile. “My father gave me the name when I was a child because he thought I was a good footballer, and it’s stuck ever since.”

The nickname has stuck for the simple reason that he has lived up to it. Haiti’s prized asset, Christophe is a quick and gifted attacking midfielder who has just signed for French club RC Strasbourg and was part of the Haiti senior squad that reached the semi-finals at the 2019 Concacaf Gold Cup.

FOOTBALL PORTRAITS - Maradona, al di qua del Bene e del Male (2005)

Più di Pelé e Di Stéfano, gli altri Miti del calcio ma troppo “perfetti” e “distanti”, è entrato nel cuore di chiunque ami il calcio. Qualunque cosa che riguardi Maradona farà sempre notizia e il motivo, in fondo, è semplice: lui giocava soprattutto per la gente
di CHRISTIAN GIORDANO Eurocalcio n. 56, giugno 2005

Avenida Puyreddon a Buenos Aires, maggio 2004.
Il senso di tutto, per il popolo di Maradona, è tutto lì. Nelle ore di attesa fuori dall’ospedale, con la gente che ne innalza immaginette come fossero santini e improvvisa preghiere. Poi esaudite. Diego uscirà e, tra una crisi e l’altra, una visita a Fidel e una spruzzata di populismo, un intervento dimagrante in Colombia (dopo aver toccato i 121 kg, 49 in più di quando giocava, ndr) e una telecomparsata ben retribuita, si riprenderà. Fino alla prossima volta, naturalmente. Quando il pueblo, il “suo” pueblo tornerà a mobilitarsi nell’illusorio tentat…

Miguel Perdomo: “La selección es momento de tranquilidad para los haitianos”

Publicado el: 01 Oct 2019  Luis Vílchez / @lvilchez8.- 
El fútbol no es una de los primeros tópicos que se vienen a la cabeza cuando se habla de Haití; sin embargo, es un país que ha ido a un Mundial adulto (1974). Su actualidad se relaciona más con desastres naturales, pobreza y conflictos. La selección sub-17 del país caribeño dirá presente en octubre en el Mundial sub-17 masculino. Al frente del grupo estará un venezolano, Miguel Perdomo.
El estratega criollo buscará hacer historia y que el equipo logre superar el grupo C, que comparte con: Francia, Chile y Corea del Sur. El merideño habló con Balonazos de su llegada, cómo es su día a día en un país tan convulso, el balompié haitiano, su trabajo y muchos temas más. De esta manera Perdomo toma el testigo de José Alí Cañas que fue asistente de Ratomir Dujković en el Mundial adulto de 2006, donde el serbio fue el director técnico de Gha…

Kenson Désir / MARDI 14 MAI 2019

C’est fait. Après une première participation en 2007, la sélection haïtienne U 17 a arraché son billet pour la coupe du Monde de cette année au terme d’un match épique contre le Honduras, le dimanche 12 mai à l’IMG Académie, 1-1, 4-3 aux tirs au but.

 Simone Basso, 29 ottobre 2019
Il 30 ottobre Diego Armando Maradona spegne cinquantanove candeline di un’esistenza esagerata, roba che un essere umano normale potrebbe accumulare vivendo dieci volte tanto. E’ stato Maradona a dispetto dell’autolesionismo praticato; uno sciamano colle scarpette allacciate e un pallone da calcio (o un’arancia...). Oppure, a scelta, l’ultimo dei Mohicani.
“Si no hubiese tomado droga. Hubiese sido un jugador de la puta madre.” Una montagna di cocaina, la dipendenza cominciò in Catalogna, le donnine, il “Chiagni e fotti” da capopopolo sbilenco.

Diego con la maglia del Boca Juniors e la (sua) Bombonera
Il Diego è venerato ma non è mai stato un santo. Per Maradiego vale, più di ogni altro campionissimo, la sindrome di James Brown. Anche se diventi un dioscuro per la tua gente, rimarrai povero fuori. 
Puoi fermare una rivolta nei ghetti con un appello in diretta tivù, ma non riuscirai mai a gestire quella fo…

Mondiale U17 Brasile 2019 - CANADA

FIFA U-17 World Cup history

Although the 2019 edition will be Canada’s seventh appearance at the U-17 World Cup, their track record is less than impressive. While their maiden adventure in 1987 was enjoyable in their role of hosts, they have never made it past the group stage and only twice in the last 24 years have they qualified for the finals, at Mexico 2011 and UAE 2013.

Road to Brazil

After finishing second to USA in the group stage, Canada went on to beat Curacao 3-0 to reach the quarter-finals. They then impressively knocked out Costa Rica, coming back from 1-0 down to take the tie to extra-time and win 4-3 on penalties. While this was enough for a ticket to Brazil 2019, they fell at the next hurdle to the Stars and Stripes and missed out on what would have been only their second-ever Concacaf U-17 Championship final.

FIFA U-17 World Cup history
There will be a new African representative at Brazil 2019: Angola. The young Palancas Negras upset the odds by not only reaching the semi-finals of the 2019 CAF U-17 Africa Cup of Nations, but also by beating Nigeria 2-1 in the match for third place.
Road to Brazil 2019
Angola put in the greatest performance in their history at the U-17 Cup of Nations, only losing out to Cameroon on penalties (4-3) after a 0-0 draw at the semi-final stage. Earlier in the competition, they had clinched a creditable second place in a tough group that included Nigeria, Uganda and hosts Tanzania.
The coach
Portuguese-born Pedro Soares Goncalves took charge of Angola’s U-17 side in 2018, having previously coached at the academy run by Primeiro d’Agosto – one of the African country’s major clubs – since 2016, and at Sporting Lisbon’s academy prior to that.
