Final whistle – there is a penalty shootout!
The World Cup will be decided at the penalty spot. Now players with strong nerves are in demand. Germany’s hopes lie with goalkeeper Konstantin Heide, who saved two penalties in the semi-final against Argentina.
90th + 8 minutes – It smells like a penalty shootout
Two minutes left to play. Neither team wants to take any more risks. The decision will probably come from the penalty spot.
90th + 2 minutes – Long added time
Meanwhile, there is a full ten minutes of added time. The French look a little fresher and are pushing for a win in regular time.
90th + 1 minute – huge chance for Germany
Paris Brunner beats his opponent in the penalty area, but fails in the first attempt by the French goalkeeper. Max Moerstedt puts the follow-up shot over the crossbar!
87th minute – There is no extra time
There is no extra time for the U17 World Cup. If the score remains 2-2, the decision will be made on penalties. But the German team has to achieve this first.
85th minute – equalizer for France
A fine combination on the right side ends with a flat cross, which the completely free-standing Mathis Amougou converts to make it 2-2. Bitter for Germany!
81st minute – strength weakens
Now it depends on who has the greater will. Both teams seem exhausted after the long tournament. There are still around ten minutes to play. Eric da Silva Moreira throws himself into a French shot.
75th minute – Exciting final phase
Normally there is still a quarter of an hour to play. Germany is still leading 2-1, but the momentum is clearly with the French.
70th minute – Osawe flies off the pitch
Now things are getting tricky for Germany. Winners Osawe sees his second yellow card after a foul and has to go to the dressing room early. Germany outnumbered. Now the shaking begins.
67th minute – Germany changes
Bilal Yalcinkaya leaves the pitch. For Hamburger SV’s offensive player, coach Wück brings Robert Ramsak from Munich.
61st minute – Hardly any relief
The German team is trying to relieve the pressure, but in this phase of the game they must primarily fend off the furious attacks of the French. This will now be a test of nerves for the Wück team.
56th minute – DFB selection wobbles
The French’s quick counterattack is having an effect. A French corner finds the head of Yvann Titi, forcing Germany’s goalkeeper Konstantin Heide to make a brilliant save. Suddenly the equalizer is in the air.
53rd minute – 2-1, France hits back
Goal for the French, it’s only 2:1. Saimon Bouabré dribbles his way through the German defense and hits the goal with a low shot from the left side.
51st minute – 2-0 for Germany!
Germany scores again! Moerstedt drives the ball over the right side, Brunner misses the ball in the middle, but Darvich is lurking at the second post. The captain sinks the ball into the goal to make it 2-0.

46th minute – The ball rolls again
Germany returns to the pitch unchanged. For France, Nhoa Sangui comes on for Aymen Sadi.
Half-time break – Germany on course for the title
The German U17 leads 1-0 against France at halftime of the World Cup final. The lead of the DFB selection is even a little too tight given the good opportunities. If the Wück team can maintain their level from the first 45 minutes, their chances of winning the World Cup are good. However, Argentina’s late equalizer in the semi-finals should serve as a warning to Germany.
45th minute – Another penalty for Germany?
It’s about a possible foul by the French goalkeeper on Max Moerstedt. This time, however, there is no penalty for the DFB juniors. But eight minutes of injury time.
39th minute – Germany controls
After Germany took the lead, the game calmed down a bit. Germany has more possession of the ball and continues to look for top scorer Brunner. Meanwhile, the French are trying not to concede another goal before half-time.
31st minute – Deserved lead
The German team’s leadership is deserved at this point. The Wück team is secure in defense and keeps creating scoring opportunities. Brunner and his teammates are on course for a World Cup title.

29th minute – Penalty for Germany, Brunner scores
There is a penalty for Germany. Brunner prepares the ball. And hits the bottom left corner. 1-0!
25th minute – Penalty for Germany?
The video referee wakes up. He sends the referee Eskas to the screen. It’s about an alleged foul on Bilal Yalcinkaya. The assessment of the situation takes a surprisingly long time.
22nd minute – First chance for France
Saimon Bouabré tests Konstantin Heide with a long-range shot. Germany’s keeper sails through the air and deflects the ball to the side. Still 0-0.
15th minute – The captain takes off
Noah Darvich, Germany’s captain, dribbles through midfield to shoot from 20 meters. The ball rushes just over the French goal. The German team has more of the game in the early stages.
10th minute – Germany puts pressure on
The Wück team takes the fourth corner into France’s penalty area. But so far the French defenders have sovereignty in the airspace.
4th minute – German goal disallowed
Goal for Germany? Paris Brunner hits the ball into the French net. But the linesman raises the flag. Max Moerstedt had already been offside during the preparatory work.
1st minute – kick-off
France toasts. The ball is rolling.
12:55 p.m. – The anthems are playing
Led by Noah Darvich, the German selection steps onto the pitch at Manahan Stadium. In a few moments, referee Espen Eskas (Norway) blows the whistle to start the game.
11:55 a.m. – Germany’s starting lineup
Coach Christian Wück trusts his successful team from the semi-final against Argentina. Penalty hero Konstantin Heide, who saved two penalties against the South Americans, is also between the posts from the start. He had replaced regular goalkeeper Max Schmitt, who was ill. Now Heide enjoys trust again.

11:37 a.m. – Götze writes to the U17 team
Mario Götze believes that the German U17 footballers will win the World Cup and encouraged them one day before the final against France. “Now, shortly before the final, I would like to say to you: I believe in you. You can do that! Reward yourself,” wrote the winning goalscorer of the 2014 World Cup final in Rio de Janeiro in a letter on “skysport.de”. “Fight for each other. Run for each other. And help each other. I will follow your game, we only play in Augsburg on Sunday.”
