    How on earth did CAF sead the teams such that Gh, Nigeria n Cote d'voire fall in the same group while host, Morocco gets Tunisia, Botswana n Gabon. This is jx a ploy 2 get the host thru 2 the next stage n also 2 the world youth championship. Itz a shame 1 of those three teams in in group B, all powerhouses at U-17 level, wud be sacrificed 4 a mediocre team in group A 2 rep Africa at de world cup jx 4 the sake of Morocco.

    This should present a good challenge to the crew as it will eliminate any lackluster preparation towards the tournament,you will definitely encounter any of them on your way to the chalice and even have to encounter the dreaded south Americans and the Spanish further as you progress. REAL CHAMPS PLAY TOUGH SIDES.

    we fear the situation not the teams, it's possible to be eliminated.
