[U-17 WORLD CUP SCOREBOARD]. Two years ago, Mexico won the U-17 World Cup in Peru, but it failed to qualify for this year's finals in South Korea. Of the CONCACAF region's five representatives, two reached the second round and were eliminated on Thursday: the USA losing, 2-1, to Germany, and Costa Rica falling, 2-0, to Argentina. Haiti and Honduras, which had edged out the Mexicans in qualifying, exited in the first round without a win, as did Trinidad & Tobago. The quarterfinalists are comprised of four European teams (France, Spain, England, Germany) and two African teams (Ghana, Nigeria).
