    Great for African football!!! Though I did not see the Mexico-Nigeria game, I can guess that what happened was Mexico's weening hubris - a trait that has bedeviled my country of birth's incapability of closing out games, virtually at all levels (save a "couple" here and there) their nemesis being their own shortcomings.

    Great tournament, with some exciting games and talent. Just wondering if the FIFA laws of the game apply to this tournament. I didn't see spats with referees/ARs; no picking up the ball to dealy the game, and no encroachment. This is very much more appealing than what I see otherwise; why the the difference?

    What are the chances that the Nigeria U-17 is actually an U-17 team?

    The same as Mali. Slim and none, the real question is are they even U21

    What are the chances that the US U-21 would defeat either Mali or Nigeria U-17 teams? That's a better ?

    Oooookay!!! Ha! And I was just waiting to read the casting of aspersions regarding the ages of both African teams, and lo and behold, here we have them folks!!! I suppose, this is because some years ago, in a different century but same planet, several U17 or U19 teams from African and Latin American countries were banned from competition due exactly to using over-age players, hence the last three comments above, which to me is nothing short of being xenophobic,and perhaps I am a bit jaded and believe the teams are "actually (an) even U17 team(s)..." So it is done, and all I say to ye all, PLAY ON, PLAY ON!!!

    Oh yeah, of course, Ric, attack the messenger. Last century? How about this... "In 2003, Kenya's Under-17 national team were dissolved by the Kenyan Government after some players revealed themselves to be over 18 years of age.[8] The same year, Ghana's Deputy Youth and Sports Minister Joe Aggrey said he wished to stop age cheats.[9] In 2009, Nigerian journalist Adokiye Amiesimaka accused the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF) of being complicit with age-cheats because it gave the nation a competitive advantage. He had what he considered to be proof that some players were overage but the NFF were not interested in taking his complaint seriously.[10] In December 2010, the Senegal Football Federation withdrew Diawandou Diagne, Hervé Diédhiou and Samba Diallo from their under-17 national team after it was found they were overage following an MRI scan.[11] In February 2011, Ivorian football manager and SuperSport television pundit Mamadou Gaye responded to a question asking who he thought would win the 2011 U-17 World Cup with "...any of the four team representing us [Africa] in the world cup U17 can win the trophee (sic), because at that level we like cheating on our age." https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_fraud_in_association_football

    Ric. I say this because of the history. It's the same problem with young players coming to Europe and playing U17 when they are U20-21-2/ Remember Mexico has been caught cheating on two occasions. Look at last African youth tournament.

    It's a big problem no one wants to address, because the European clubs and big agents all want to profit from these boys. FIFA turns a blind eye.

    BTW, what is convincing is that the US U-17 performed samo-samo, little soccer IQ as usual. The referenced blogger arguments are for argument sake.

    OK, I w, you say "tomayto," I say "tomatoh" I was just trying to remind folks of this "age different than your physical appearance" farce that permeates everywhere. Goodness sakes alive, I remember that it happened in ayso way back in the early '80's when I was required to coach a local region's "all star" team; I had a U10 boys team and was lucky to have been given an excellent player, let's call him Carlitos, properly vetted, mind y'all, that is until one of the local ayso commissioners, decided to question the boy about his name, place of birth, and birth date!!! Wow, I said, "Hey Madam Commissioner, your very own office vetted Carlitos, he more than passed muster, so why are you doing this now?" Her response? He doesn't look his age and he's "too good for a boy his age!" Really, she said that, to my and many other's dismay not to say his parents were truly pissed off they almost pulled Carlos out of ayso. The point is that this will never be solved and will for ever be a problem. And btw, I've many, many more similar stories on this, but I won't bore y'all! PLAY ON!!!

    That's really weak... you sound xenophobic... again.

    "The mandatory use of Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) was introduced by FIFA in 2009 for the FIFA Under-17 World Cup to help ascertain whether players are over age or not. MRI is considered to be 99% accurate until the age of 17, after which it becomes harder for medical professionals to calculate a person's age." In other words, Nigeria's win is very legitimate.
