The final roster has been announced for U17 (1996) guys who will go to European Youth Olympics and from 1997 three guys are selected - in defense Gvido Jansons and Kristiāns Rubins, and in attack Mārtiņš Dzierkalis (no wonder as he seems to be the top scorer of Latvian U18 league). So probably these are the best prospects.

Also SK Rīga 1997 is currently second in Saint-Petersburg championship, SK Riga 1996 could only dream about that last year, so we will see how it goes. Still too early to have much information about 97 guys, as I remember only after the last EYOF that we participated in we could assess 94 much better and realized that Rihards Bukarts who played as underager there might be somewhat good. So if we see something good in this tournament from 1997, then we can talk

As regards the U17 roster as such the biggest thing is that Locāns and Bušs have not been selected and that no SK Riga 96 goalkeepers (playing in Saint Petersburg and Latvian league) have not been chosen too. But the coaches (from Pārdaugava) are responsible for the result and we will see how it goes.
