The U-17 World Cup is now just 10 days away

The FIFA U-17 World Cup, the tournament which is on every Indian football supporters' mind is now just 10 days away. All the 24 teams that have qualified for the biggest youth football event in the world have announced their final squads. 504 players will now test themselves at the highest level in six stadiums in the country, in what will be their first real international exposure in the game. 

India, Niger and New Caledonia are the three new participants in the World Cup with India qualifying for its first-ever stint in the U-17 setup. Players such as Tim Weah, Vinicius Junior and Aniket Jadhav will be looked at closely by the fans as the teenage stars will look to follow in the footsteps of Neymar, Toni Kroos and Ronaldinho; some players who previously played in the U-17 World Cup.
