The 2007 African U-17 Championship was a football competition organized by the Confederation of African Football (CAF). The tournament took place in Togo. For the first time, the top four teams qualified for the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup (because of his expansion from 16 teams to 24) instead of three, as it has been on previous tournaments.
