Poland U-17 and Ireland U-17 qualified from Group A. Poland topped the rankings with two wins and one defeat. The youngsters from Poland scored 10 goals in the group stage and were the joint-highest scorers. Ireland were level on points with them. They had a lower goal difference than their opponents and had to settle for second place. Hungary U-17 and Wales U-17 were eliminated.

France U-17 finished the group second, ahead of Portugal U-17. Both teams were level on four points, but France had a better goal difference. The Scotland U-17 team finished fourth and were the only team that failed to register a point in the group stage.

German U-17 and Bayern Munich's youngster, Robert Ramsak leads the goal-scoring chart along with Polish U-17 star Mateusz Skoczylas and Barcelona's and Spain U-17 player Marc Guiu. These players have scored three goals each in the tournament.

The UEFA U-17 Euro knockout stage is all set and here is the list of fixtures:

Match 2: Germany U-17 vs Switzerland U-17

Match 3: Spain U-17 vs Ireland U-17

Match 4: England U-17 vs France U-17

The tournament heads into a do-or-die stage. The Germans have shown a lot of dominance and look like the favourites to lift the trophy. France U-17 will look to defend their title. Spain U-17 have won the most titles (9), and they will look to enter double figures. These future stars will look to add some silverware early in their careers.
