Schedule, results, preview, how to watch (en Espanol)

The first U-17 World Cup since 2019 hits Indonesia for the next three weeks, and the United States U-17 national team will have its hands full trying to capture its first ever World Cup.


It’s the 18th appearance for the U.S. U-17s, who are looking to escape the group stage after a disappointing showing in 2019. The Baby Yanks’ best finish was a fourth-place run in 1999, but they’ve failed to reach the knockout rounds in two of the last three tournaments.

The 2021 tournament in Peru was canceled as a result of the pandemic, and now former Costa Rican international and ex-Chicago Fire star Gonzalo Segares leads the U.S. U-17s into a Group E with Burkina Faso, France, and South Korea.

Players to watch at the U-17 World Cup

Seventeen of the 21 players on Segares’ roster are based in the United States, with Liverpool, Augsburg, Eintracht Frankfurt, and UE Cornelia also boasting representatives on the U.S. roster.

Keyrol Figueroa figures to be a key piece for Sagares’ United States squad. The son of Honduran star Maynor Figueroa, Keyrol had four goals and three assists in 12 U-18 Premier League matches for Liverpool last season. He scored seven times at the CONCACAF U-18 Championship.

Staying in CONCACAF, Mexico’s Fidel Barajas is earning regular minutes for Charleston Battery in the USL Championship and has appeared for the U.S. and Mexico U-17s.

Spain’s Marc Guiu has already made his Barcelona first team debut and became the youngest debutant to score for the Blaugranas in La Liga. Similarly, Brazil’s Rayan has debuted and scored for Vasco da Gama, while Assan Ouedraogo of Germany is playing for Schalke in 2.Bundesliga. Claudio Echeverri of Argentina — and River Plate — is one of the most in-demand teenagers in world football.

For England, Jayden Meghoma has been on a bench for Southampton and Sam Amo-Ameyaw has four appearances for Saints’ first team, while Chelsea’s Ishe Samuels-Smith is a high-ceiling prospect. Luton’s Joe Johnson has appeared for the Hatters in this season’s League Cup, while Chris Rigg has become a regular for Sunderland in the Championship. Arsenal’s Ethan Nwaneri made his first team debut last season.
