In defeating Mexico 2-1 in the final of the 2019 FIFA U-17 World Cup™ at the Estadio Bezerraoao on Sunday, Brazil’s U-17 team achieved an unprecedented feat. For the first time ever in an 11-a-side tournament, A Seleção were crowned world champions in their own country, in contrast to the disappointing senior-team FIFA World Cup™ experiences in 1950 and 2014.

And for the winners, hoisting this prestigious trophy in front of such ecstatic home fans may open the door to a long and successful career with the Brazilian national team.

“The generation born in 2002, even those who were not included in this squad, are all part of this. We deserve the Cup – we’re undefeated, after all,” said Yan Couto, who provided the impressive assist for Lazaro’s clinical winning goal in the final. “We have to think big – to think about eventually earning a place in the senior team and maybe even playing in a World Cup one day.”

Recipient of the adidas Golden Ball award at Brazil 2019, Gabriel Veron also believes he could go a long way while wearing the famous yellow jersey.

“I think many of us will pursue a professional career and end up making something of our lives,” said the confident forward, who hails from Assu, a small town in the north-east of Brazil. “They must be happy for me; I’ve propelled Assu up onto the global stage!”
