The 2015 edition has started. South Korea are playing Brazil right now (Group B also has England and Guinea).

Well, 1-0 win for South Korea over Brazil, helped by some inept defending...

As someone who was at Chamsil to see Korea beat Brazil in a friendly 1-0 back in '99 i dispute that.

I had a sneaking suspicion Korea had beaten Brazil before in a friendly so I stand corrected...thats why I put apparently...my source was the ever accurate Korea Times

This is the first time for the South Korean Under-17 team to beat Brazil in official FIFA matches. In the previous six matches, Korea recorded one draw and five losses.

Whoops...misread it. I apologise to the Korea Times in its quest for its high standards in reporting.......the standard of editorials they allow is always of the top level

Another 1-0 victory and South Korea are through to the next round. Yet again they had some help from opposition defenders (though you have to feel a bit for the kid here who lost his balance).

England lost to Brazil in the other match and are bottom in this group.

South Korea 0–0 England
In the other match Brazil defeated Guinea 3-1.
So...

Code: Select all

South Korea 3  2 1 0  2-0  +2  7
Brazil      3  2 0 1  4-2  +2  6
England     3  0 2 1  1-2  -1  2
Guinea      3  0 1 2  2-5  -3  1


Korea and Brazil go through and England (despite their miserable record) have a chance of squeezing through as one of the best 3rd place teams.

England finished bottom of the table ranking 3rd place teams and did not go through.

North Korea and New Zealand went through to the knock out stages though: both thanks to injury time goals today.
(NZ progress is a big surprise as they have been quite dreadful up to this point, while Paraguay were the opposite - results here.
Table is amusing enough to warrant me posting it here:

Code: Select all

France    3   3 0 0  14- 4  +10   9
NZ        3   1 1 1   3- 7   -4   4
-----------------------------------
Paraguay  3   1 0 2   8- 7   +1   3
Syria     3   0 1 2   1- 8   -7   1 

NZ can now set up a QF against Australia is they get past Brazil in the second round).

South Korea will play Belgium in the 2nd round, and if they are successful will face the winner of France v Costa Rica in the QF.
North Korea faces Mali, and then (if there is a then) the winner of Germany v Croatia.

Bracket here.
