Brazil look to finish group league in style, take on Niger

Friday, October 13, 2017

Margao: Assured of a pre-quarterfinal spot in the FIFA U-17 World Cup, three-time champions Brazil would look to entertain the Goan crowd with yet another win when they take on debutants Niger in their last Group D match here today.

Brazil have been in sublime form, winning both their encounters against Spain and North Korea to top Group D and make it to the knock-out round.

Just like Goa, Brazil, who were also ruled by the Portuguese, have the same culture and the team will have no difficulty in adjusting themselves to the conditions here.

They would be looking to take advantage of it and end their league campaign with yet another dominating show, keeping their unbeaten run intact.
Brazil, who were also the runners-up twice, are looking to win the title for the fourth time.

The Brazilian trio of Lincoln, Paulinho and Brenner have combined well up front and have troubled their rival defence with their sublime skill.

Their midfield duo of Marcos Antonio and Alan Souza will keep the upfront busy with regular supply of passes.

Niger's defence will have an uphill task to keep the mighty Brazilians at bay. "We are happy to come down to Goa, the place is similar to Brazil and we feel at home here as the weather is same like Brazil," said media manager Gregorio.

"We are happy to play our last match of the league down in Goa as there are lot of Brazilian fans staying here and they will come to cheer our team."

Debutant Niger, on the other hand, had a dream start to the tournament when they won their opening encounter against North Korea but lost the next game to Spain.

Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)
Aries (Mar 21 - Apr 20)You will be inclined towards deep introspection. You will realise that it is important to understand your inner self. However, Ganesha says spontaneity is equally vital, and playing with children is a very good way to be spontaneous. Today, you should refrain from taking major decisions of any kind without consulting the right people.
