Mondiale U17 Brasile 2019 - AUSTRALIA


FIFA U-17 World Cup record
Of the four Asian qualified teams, Australia boast the best record at the FIFA U-17 World Cup having featured in the global showpiece a total of twelve times. Notably, they stormed to the final at New Zealand 1999 and reached the quarter-finals six times as well as progressing to the Round of 16 on another two occasions.

The road to Brazil
Australia had to overcome a 3-0 opening loss to Korea Republic during the group stage, but managed to progress as the second-placed team with wins over Iraq (2-1) and Afghanistan (4-0). In the all-important quarter-final encounter with Indonesia, the Joeys came from behind to record a narrow 3-2 win to secure a place in the last four and thus qualification for Brazil 2019.
The coach
Born and raised in the Blue Mountains region west of Sydney, TREVOR MORGAN has enormous experience in youth development. He has spent two decades managing football at the well-regarded W…

Mondiale U17 Brasile 2019 - ECUADOR


Will be taking part in their fifth World Cup

Key figures: #10 Johan Mina (forward), #17 John Mercado (midfielder)

Ecuador’s qualification bordered on the miraculous, requiring as it did four goals in the last 33 minutes of their final game. That achievement owed much to their never-say-die attitude and the finishing skills of tournament top scorer Johan Mina (six goals).

That high-scoring victory (4-1) over Argentina summed up the rollercoaster ride Javier Rodriguez’s side endured in Peru, where explosive attacking play went hand in hand with the defensive frailties that made them the most scored-against team (13) at the tournament.

Alongside Argentina, they are the only other South American side who will compete at both the FIFA U-20 and U-17 World Cups this year.
