A familiar foe for the U.S. awaits the U-17 Men’s National Team in India during the upcoming World Cup.
When the U-17s travel to India in the fall, they’ll inherit the legacy of the senior team’s ongoing rivalry with Ghana as the two teams will face off in the group stage. Joining the U-17s and Ghana are Colombia and tournament hosts India. The team played their way into the tournament via the CONCACAF Championship, where they took gold with a 4-3 win over Mexico in the final.
The U-17s will open the tournament with a match against India on October 6 at 10:30 a.m. EST. They’ll then face Ghana on the second matchday in Group A, on October 9 at 7:30 a.m. EST, before closing out with Colombia on October 12 at 10:30 a.m. EST. The top two teams from each of the six groups automatically advances to the knockout stage, with the four best third-place finishers also advancing to the next round.
