So there's no wonder the Australian FIFA U-17 World Cup-bound winger is dreaming big as he prepares to test himself against the planet’s elite youngsters in Brazil in the coming weeks.
Every time 16-year-old Hammond rocks up for training at the Portuguese powerhouse he’s reminded of the legacy left by its alumni, and inspired to fulfill his own football destiny.
Entering his fifth year in Portugal, the kid from Edensor Park in Sydney’s west gives praise for the pathway stretching ahead of him.

All-action Joeys midfielderCaleb Watts is doing just that as a key ingredient of coach Trevor Morgan’s FIFA Under-17 World Cup soufflé ahead of Sunday’s first serving against Ecuador in Brazil.
England-born but with an Australian lineage, Watts, 17, is one of just three overseas based players on Morgan’s menu - the others are Noah Botic and Tristan Hammond.
And much is expected of him in a tournament which pits Australia against Hungary and Nigeria in their remaining group games. 
Not least by Watts himself, as he climbs a ladder he believes will ultimately lead to the first team squad at St Mary’s.
Having cut his teeth as a junior with Queens Park Rangers, Watts’ move to the Saints in 2017 elevated his aspirations to a highe…

El Mundial Sub 17, que ya fue "cuna" de consagrados como Ronaldinho Gaúcho, Andrés Iniesta o Neymar, nombres que sobresalen entre decenas de figuras de las anteriores 17 ediciones del torneo, dará el sábado otro pistoletazo evocando a los astros que dejaron su huella en la cita.
Desde el sábado, dos estadios de la ciudad de Goiania, uno de Vitória y otro de Brasilia acogerán hasta el 17 de noviembre el torneo que comenzó a disputarse en 1985 en China.
EGI 1997 (Ronaldinho) Una de las máximas figuras que han surgido del Mundial Sub'17 ha sido Ronaldinho Gaúcho, quien en el torneo de Egipto 1997 condujo con su "magia" a Brasil para su primera conquista orbital en la categoría, después de doce años de participaciones.
'Dinho', posteriormente, se convertiría en estrella de la Canarinha, campeona del Mundial de Corea del Sur-Japón …

Con una tripletta Johan Mina ha ribaltato l’esito della terza partita del Sub-17, che vedeva il suo Ecuador sotto di due reti contro il Cile, trascinato da un grande Gonzalo Tapia.
Il numero 10 ecuadoriano aveva già regalato tre punti alla “Mini Tri”, nel match precedente contro la Bolivia, garantendo da solo 6 dei 7 punti ottenuti dalla sua squadra, che si è così guadagnata l’accesso alla fase “Hexagonal”.
Probabilmente, l’Ecuador avrebbe anche potuto essere a punteggio pieno, se nella prima partita contro il Venezuela,…
