CHILE 2015

European sextet complete Chile line-up.


UEFA U-17 Championship semi-finalists Belgium, France, Germany and Russia were joined by play-off winners Croatia and England in booking their tickets to the FIFA U-17 World Cup Chile 2015.

The sextet complete the 24-team line-up for the global finals and there was plenty of drama as the Europeans booked their tickets to Chile.

Belgium won their quarter-final against Croatia on penalties after a 1-1 draw, and Germany reached the finals the same way, after a goalless quarter-final against Spain.

Russia saw off England to reach the semi-finals, and Chile, with a 1-0 victory, while France took a more straightforward route with a 3-0 win over Italy.

That left four teams to fight it out for the two remaining U-17 World Cup places, and Croatia saw off Italy in their play-off thanks to a solitary strike from their captain Nikola Moro.

England, who have the joint-worst penalty shootout record at the senior World Cup, held their nerve to see off Spain - converting all five penalties after a goalless play-off to seal the final spot at Chile 2015. Aston Villa's Easah Suliman scored the crucial spot-kick to send the Three Lions to the finals.

Lovely !!!! NO ESPAñA !!!!! :dielaugh:
Spain didn't look too good in the U17s Euro, but then again the Spanish U17s aren't really as dominant as their other youth categories. They haven't qualified since 2009

As for Croatia, promising generation, mostly Dinamo Zagreb youth players who won the Nike Cup a few years ago. Don't concede many goals but had troubles scoring goals in Euro

The best teams at this Euro are the two finalists of course (France and Germany). Both England and Croatia are solid teams, Belgium wasn't that impressive despite making the semi's, cant comment on Russia but they always seem to do well at the youth competitions then fall of the footballing map once they hit their early 20s

For those following Copa AMerica in Chile now, several of the new and or renovated stadiums will showcase the U-17 Cup.

The German Becker in Temuco comes to mind as the Southern Green Jewel of Chile.
