Trinidad & Tobago will be making their second appearance at the FIFA U-17 World Cup, after having participated as hosts in 2001. We have been placed in Group F with the likes of Ghana, Colombia, and Germany, who have tremendous experience and successes at this tournament. T&T will be relying on Leston Paul and Stephen Knox to spearhead them to some scintillating performances. Let's rally round the Junior Warriors!!!.

From FIFA.com:
In Group F at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Korea 2007, fans can expect great excitement from start to finish. Colombia caused an upset in the qualifying rounds of the South American U-17 Championship by beating Argentina to second place with a hard-fought 0-0 draw against champions Brazil.

Ghana took third place in the African U-17 Championship and are already a major force in this age range: the Black Starlets have so far qualified for the FIFA U-17 World Cup seven times, taking the title in 1991 and 1995. After an eight-year gap, Germany's U-17 side have managed to qualify for the global showcase again and are eager to do well, whereas outsiders Trinidad and Tobago are looking to cause a few upsets, just like their senior team did at the 2006 FIFA World Cup™ in Germany.
