Notes - Extremely rare player shirt believed to have been issued to Abuda for the FIFA U-17 World Championship hosted in Finland in August 2003. Abuda scored in the sides opening match against Cameroon which ended in a 1-1 draw. The striker found the net again in the next game, an emphatic 5-0 victory over Portugal which was followed up with a 3-0 win against Yemen. USA were easily dismissed in the Quarter Finals before Abuda was back in the goals in Semi's bagging a brace in a 2-0 defeat of Colombia. In the Final in Helsinki the Seleção held off the challenge of Cesc Fàbregas and David Silva's Spain to win 1-0 and lift their 3rd U-17 World Championship title. Abuda was joint second top goalscorer for the tournament tied with Freddy Adu and team-mate Evandro. The Corinthians starlet was later snapped up by Wolfsburg
