FIFA U-17 World Cup 2007

The FIFA U-17 World Cup 2007 kicks off on the 18 August in Suwon, as the best young players from all over the world gather in Korea for the tournament.

Eight Latin American teams are in action in Korea, with Brazil among the favourites to go home victorious.

Eurosport are expected to provide coverage in the UK, although if the U-20 World Cup is anything to go by there will probably not be showing every game. TV is probably going to be the best place to catch coverage of all the games, but I will post up confirmation of the Eurosport/FIFA TV schedules as and when they become available.

As you can imagine, almost all of the players on show still play for teams within their own countries, although there are a few exceptions, such as Brazilian full-back Fabio, who is owned by Manchester United.

Here are links to the squad lists for each of Latin American teams involved in the competition.

Costa Rica
Trindad and Tobago

Stay tuned for more coverage once the event kicks off next week.
