Golden Eaglets faces Netherland in Brazil…

Having retained the lead in Group B despite a
defeat to Australia in their last group game, coach
Manu Garba’s boys have been pitched against the
talented Europeans in the Round of 16 at the FIFA
U17 World Cup in Brazil.

Five-time world champions and Group B winners
Nigeria are set to face off with
Netherlands , who qualified from Group D as one of
the four best third-placed teams.

The Golden Eaglets defeated Hungary 4-2 in their
opening match at the World Cup before seeing off
Ecuador 3-2 to charge to the top of their Group.
Australia knocked the winds out of the Eaglets’ sail
but the defeat was not enough to push the 2015
world champions off the group’s summit.

The Netherlands however started their campaign
poorly with two straight defeats, a 3-0 loss to
Japan and a 3-1 defeat to Senegal, but surged into
the knockout phase by soundly defeating USA 4-0
on Saturday night in their Group D finale at the FIFA
U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019™.

A mouthwatering 2019 U17 World Cup Round of 16
clash between the African starlets and their
European counterpart is billed for Tuesday at the
Estadio Olimpico, Goiania – the first time ever these
two teams will meet in this competition.
