Unlike the U19s, our U17 national team continued with the losses in the Elite Round. And the last is the worst, not just an ordinary defeat but a humiliating one. There are no words to describe the devastation that these kids suffered in Poland today. Georgia celebrated a 6:1 win, leaving the Macedonian in tears of shame after the final whistle.

This huge defeat also affected the hosts Poland who finished third as Georgia went second thanks to a better goal-difference because of today’s goalsgalore over Macedonia.
