The Syria national Under-17 football team is the national football youth team of Syria and is controlled by the Syrian Football Association.


The first official appearance of a Syrian U-17 choice was in the 2002 AFC U-17 Championship qualification. In Group Two of the qualification, Syria beat Saudi Arabia 1-0 on aggregate, the only goal coming in the second leg in Syria, and so qualified for the finals at the first attempt.

In the 2002 AFC U-17 Championship, Syria beat Qatar in the first match of the group stage, then followed a draw against Uzbekistan and a defeat against Japan before falling to a 2-1 defeat against Yemen in the quarter-final.

Three years later, Syria qualified for the 2006 AFC U-17 Championship in Singapore. Despite being beaten 1-0 by China in their opening game, the Syrian team advanced to the second round with a 7-0 win over Bangladesh and a 2-0 victory against Vietnam. Syria reached the quarter-finals and won 2-1 against Saudi Arabia, but lost 2-0 in the semi finals against eventual champions Japan. Despite losing the third place playoff against Tajikistan in a penalty shootout, they qualified for the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup in South Korea.
