NIGERIANS ARE AMONG U17 WORLD CUP ALL-TIME TOP GOAL SCORERS

Nigeria’s Victor Osimhen with 10 goals in the 2015 tournament is the record holder in terms of leading scorer per tournament.

The world champions have only managed to crown one of their own as top goalscorer on five occasions: Nigeria’s Wilson Oruma in 1993, Florent Sinama Pongolle for France in 2001, Mexico’s Carlos Vela in 2005, Victor Osimhen for Nigeria in 2015, and England’s Rhian Brewster in 2017.

Two players scored in two different editions: Marco Etcheverry (BOL) one goal in 1985 and one in 1987 and Emmanuel Duah (GHA) one in 1991 and three in 1993.
