The Colombia U17 vs Brazil U17 CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying match will take place this Thursday, March 16, 2017 (6:15 PM Pacific) at the Estadio el Teniente. The competition being held in Chile will name the four national teams from South America to represent CONMEBOL in October’s 2017 FIFA U17 World Cup in India.
Colombia performed well in the first stage of the tournament as they finished 2nd in Group A with 7 points after 2 wins, 1 tie, and 1 loss. The team coached by Orlando Restrepo has suffered a bit during the final group stage as after three games they have only earned 4 points; 1 win, 1 tie, and 1 loss. The ‘cafetaleros’ will face the tournament’s strongest team this Thursday in a game they strongly need to earn at least a point.
Brazil has been phenomenal throughout the tournament being undefeated after seven games. The team coached by Carlos Amadeu earned 10 points in Group B after 3 wins and 1 tie, while leading the final stage group with 7 points after 2 wins and a tie. The ‘verde amarelha’ is led by 16-year old wonder-boy Vinicius Jr. who has scored 5 goals and has already brought attention to European giants like Barcelona. With a win against Colombia, Brazil will step closer to the tournament’s title and therefore qualification into the U17 World Cup.
