In an exclusive interview with Brasil Global Tour, Under-17 coach Carlos Amadeu called on youth football to show less importance to results


Quick touches, triangulations, verticality and a lot of skill. In March, Brazil’s Under-17 team charmed the continent in winning the South American title.

More than just raising the trophy, the youngsters gave Brazilians a touch of nostalgia as they played in a style for which the Selecao are most membered around the world. Colombia's U-17 coach Carlos Restrepo compared them to the great Brazil sides of 1970 and 1982.

Selecao Coach Bahian Carlos Amadeu had found the right blend. His side romped to the title with seven wins, two draws, 24 goals scored and only three conceded. "I think this is the Brazilian style, the football I grew up watching with those great Brazil teams,” Amadeu told Brasil Global Tour.
