Mauritius national under-17 football team

The Mauritius national under-17 football team is the national under-17 football team of Mauritius, controlled by the Mauritius Football Association. The Mauritius national under-17 football team is composed of the 20 best national football players, aged 17 years or less, selected from the 4 CTR's (Centre Technique Regional) spread throughout Mauritius. The main tournaments the team competes in are the COSAFA U-17 Challenge Cup, the Africa U-17 Cup of Nations, and the CJSOI games. The team has never qualified for the FIFA U-17 World Cup or the Africa U-17 Cup of Nations, but has won the CJSOI football gold medal twice, in 2008 and in 2010.[1] The players in the team are being prepared to join the Mauritius national under-20 football team and the 1st Division Junior National Tournament in the coming years, as well as the Mauritius national football team soon after that.
