    Yes it was, the best game of the tournament for sure.

    Germany just beat France to win the title after surviving a spirited France comeback from 2-0 down to tie it at 2-2 after Germany were reduced to 10 players after a sending off.

    Germany repeated the trick from May and beat France on penalties.

    It is Germany's first U17 title and they become the first team to win the UEFA and FIFA U17 titles in the same year!

    Mali came third after beating Argentina comfortably for the bronze medals.

    Paris Brunner of Germany took the Golden Ball.

    From the next edition in 2025 the U17WC will be held annually and feature 48 teams.

    Congrats Germany, hard luck France. Germany's hero on the night was goalkeeper Konstantin Heide... does that mean he will always be playing youth soccer as he's a "constant-teen"? :thumbsdown:

    It is a shame that Prestianni and Domenech did not play. Also, Placente couldn't find a way to fit both Mastuonto and Echeverri on the same pitch, and that's understandable because it is like a Riquelme/Aimar situation.

    IDK if I've ever seen Germany lose on penalties before. They are so mentally strong in these moments.

    2016 Olympic final against Brazil. I think that is the only one on any level since the 1970s, though I do not follow all the U-whatever tournaments in Europe.

    Most famously West Germany lost the EURO 76 final on penalties to Czechoslovakia.

    That's fair. I just remember the stereotype that England had never won a shootout until Colombia and Germany seldom loses.

    Singapore / Malaysia I completely get as you drive from one to the other, but don't see why Indonesia don't just host on their own.

    I wondered that too, then I thought it might be a way of accommodating Israel if they qualify again after what happened this year!

    Ha ha I was about to post that too! And if they go on another deep run like they did to the latter stages, you'll see a lot of Singapore
