The Ghana youth team will campaign in the competition to be held in Gabon between May 14 and 28, 2017.

The U-17 AFCON serves as qualifiers for this 2017 FIFA U-17 World Cup in India from October 6 to 28.

Ghana qualified for the competition originally billed to hold in Madagascar by defeating Cote d’ Ivoire 3-1 on aggregate after the third round stage.

Nigeria won the cadet World Cup in 2013 and 2015, but failed to qualify for the 2017 U-17 Africa Cup of Nations which would have afforded the Golden Eaglets the opportunity of defending their title.
