Brazil’s Selecao are the new FIFA U-17 World Cup winners, beating Mexico 2-1 at the Brasilia’s Estadio Bezerrao on the final day of the tournament in which they were the hosts.
A Seleção collected their fourth U-17 crown after an emotional 2-1 triumph over Mexico in the final at Brasilia’s Estadio Bezerrao.
The Brazilians have now moved within one title of equaling record holders Nigeria, though this was their first since 2003. The South Americans made history as they became the second team to top the competition as hosts – the first, interestingly enough, was Mexico eight years ago.
This is their fourth U-17 crown since 2003.
