Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets faces Brazil in FIFA Under-17 World Cup quarter-finals

Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets will face Brazil in the quarter-finals of the ongoing FIFA Under-17 World Cup in Chile after a convincing 6-nil win over Australia in the round of 16.

Tournament top scorer Victor Osimhen bagged a hat trick, while further goals from Kelechi Nwakali, Essien and Chukwueze, helped the Nigerians secure a convincing victory over the Australians.

The Golden Eaglets will now meet Brazil in the quarterfinals on Sunday and their encounter will be the second time both teams would meet this year after Nigeria earned a 2-1 win over the Samba Boys at the Suwon Under-17 International Tournament in September 2015.
