FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019: Brazil, Nigeria aim to fortify last-16 bids

U17 World Cup: Ecuador Captain Points Out What Gives Team Edge Over Golden Eaglets

With the first matches logged for all 24 participants at the FIFA U-17 World Cup , jockeying for places in the knockout stage is set to intensify on Tuesday. Groups A and B are back in action, which includes the two most successful outfits in the competition's history.

Three-time champions and Group A co-leaders Brazil can do wonders for their last-16 prospects with another strong outing; this time New Zealand beckons at the Estadio Bezerrao. The other match-up of the group pits newcomers Angola against Canada. Fresh off their maiden match and first win at a U-17 world finals, can the Palanquinhas make it two for two?

Five-time U-17 kings Nigeria started slow in their opening win over Hungary, which may get them into trouble against Ecuador. La Tri netted twice in the first nine minutes to outpace Australia. Meanwhile, both Hungary and Australia took positives from their defeats last Saturday, and a win could turn the tournament around quickly for either team.
