Mexico U17 won the competition in 2011.

Mexico U17 won the competition in 2011.

Host nation United Arab Emirates will face Brazil at the FIFA U17 World Cup later this year.

They will also be pitted against Honduras and Slovakia in the youth tournament, which was held in Mexico in 2011 where the hosts won the trophy.

The defending champions will play Nigeria, Iraq and Sweden on their way to retaining the title. Their group shouldn’t be taken lightly though, considering Iraq’s fledging performances in the FIFA U20 World Cup earlier this year.

The Youth Radar will be covering the tournament in full between 17th October and 8th November.
