Nigeria’s U-17 football team, the Golden Eaglets will face Brazil in the quarter finals of the ongoing FIFA -17 World Cup in Chile.

The Golden Eaglets hammered Australia 6-0 in Viña del Mar to reach the last eight where they must now line up against three-time champions, Brazil.

Nigeria, record winners of the competition (with four titles to their name), have been in stunning form winning three of their four matches in the tournament thus far.

Emmanuel Amuneke ‘s charges have scored 14 goals while letting in just three in their four games so far while Brazil have been solid, if not spectacular so far.

The South Americans recovered from a shock opening day defeat to South Korea and have since gone on to win their next three games of the tournament.

They booked a date with the Golden Eaglets after beating New Zealand 1-0 courtesy of an extra-time strike by Luis Henrique Farinhas at Estadio Sausalito, Viña del Mar.

The quarter final fixture between both sides will hold on November 1 at Viña del Mar.
