Participating in the U-17 is irrelevant unless you make it to at least the semi final. However with the senior world cup, making it there alone is a great achievement since it is played only ONCE every four years by football professionals NOT juveniles. Ghana maybe did not qualify because they probably took it for granted. They are the SECOND most successful nation in the U-17 world cup history with 2 championships, 2 runners up, 1 third place, one fourth place. A total of 2 Golds medals, 2 silver medals, and 1 bronze medal.

"We started well, but then we had some trouble with the heat and humidity which was pretty extreme. We scored two goals, which is a good thing, but I think we didn't keep the field compact enough. In the second half both teams had their chances, but we had more and deserved to win." Albert Stuivenberg, Netherlands coach
