After dismissing Australia 6-0 in their Round of 16 encounter at the Fifa U-17 World Cup in Chile, the Golden Eaglets will battle three-time champions Brazil for a place in the semi-final.

Carlos Nascimento’s boys sealed a place in the last eight after a late penalty gave them a 1-0 win against New Zealand.

The winner of this encounter billed for Estadio Sausalito will face either Ecuador or Mexico in the semi final at the Estadio Municipal de Concepción on November 5.

The Brazil versus Nigeria encounter is the star match of the opening day of quarter-final action at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Chile 2015.

Vina Del Mar has been a kind venue for A Seleção in the past, playing host to four of Brazil’s games in their victorious FIFA World Cup campaign in 1962, with that trend continuing with two victories at the Estadio Sausalito during Chile 2015.

Nigeria stand in the way of Carlos Amadeu’s men continuing their charmed streak in Vina, and the imperious Victor Osimhen will be giving Brazil’s defenders restless nights ahead of the quarter-final. The Nigerian No 9 has scored seven goals in four games.

Seven is also the number of titles shared between these sides, but this game is remarkably the first meeting between the two sides at this level, although the nations’ U-20 sides faced off in New Zealand earlier this year – with Brazil the 4-2 victors.

Nigeria coach, Emmanuel Amuneke said his boys are ready for the Samba boys. “We are candidates to win the title, but so are Brazil. We will work to put up a good fight.”

There is another clash between Mali and Croatia and the winner of that encounter will make history in the competition. It would be either side’s inaugural semi-final at this level.
