The Golden Eaglets are of Nigeria will be ready to take on the Brazilian side when both sides square up in their quarter finals clash at the ongoing FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile, according coach Emmanuel Amunke.
The former Nigerian international in charge of the Eaglets said at the post match conference after his team defeated Australia 6-0 to set up a last 8 meeting with the South Americans:
"It was a very interesting match. We knew that Australia was a good team because they qualified from a very difficult group, but my players were able to recuperate themselves from the loss against Croatia and regained their level," fifa.com quoted Amuneke as saying.
"Victor (Osimhen) had a great game, although the philosophy of this team is to play collectively. We are candidates to win the title, but so are Brazil. We will work to put up a good fight," Amuneke stated.
The Australian coach Tony Vidmar admitted the Eaglets were too good to be handled on the day.
"We played a big part in this result. In the previous matches we managed to put a high pressure on our rivals, that was key today.
"We had the possession, but did not do anything with it. Our lines began to separate between each other and with spaces, they are lethal.
"I hope these kids can take the good things out of these three weeks and improve from there. I know that myself, as a coach, took positive things in spite of today's game," Vidmar said.
Brazil had earlier defeated New Zealand 1-0.
