The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria would face The Magyars of Hungary for the first match as Brazil's Seleção clash with The Canucks of Canada by 9pm.

Nigeria's Golden Eaglets coach, Manu Garba, has stated that his boys are fully ready for this tournament as they are going to bring a new style to their game...


"Expect to see a very good style of play from the Nigeria team, they will play total football. I was the head coach when we won the World Cup in 2013 here in Dubai. In that tournament, we scored a total of 26 goals. Since the beginning of the U17 World Cup, no team has ever scored such number of goals. This team is a little bit different from the other team because we have a different set of players but I assure you that you will see an enterprising team, a team that plays good football and scores a lot of goals too. We finished fourth, we topped our group in Tanzania but unfortunately, we lost in the semifinals during the penalty shootout. When it comes to penalties any of the two teams can go out, I think we lost 10-9 during the penalty shootout. But if you recall in 2015, the Nigeria team finished fourth in the African Championship but won the World Cup in Chile."

Which country do you think has the upper hand in the competition?
