On Tuesday, November 5, 2019, the FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019 enters its decisive knockout phase, in which the slightest detail could determine who stays and who has to pack their bags and head home.
Angola Vs Korea Republic
Angola and Korea Republic, who finished second in Groups A and C respectively, will get things started. Las Palanquinhas, whose refreshing brand of attacking football was one of the pleasant surprises of the group phase, will be taking part in the last 16 of the tournament for the first time.
As for the Koreans, who are difficult to break down and dangerous on the counter-attack, they recently scored the fastest goal of the competition against Chile.
Nigeria Vs Netherlands
The second match pits Nigeria, winners of Group B, against the Netherlands, who advanced as one of the third-placed teams with the best records. The Golden Eaglets have flirted with poor results in Brazil, but have relied on impressive comebacks to stay in the hunt .
The Oranje , meanwhile, found their feet – and goals – just when it seemed that all was lost. Going into their third and final pool encounter, the Dutch practically had one foot on the plane home, but a 4-0 victory over USA , plus some helpful results in other sections, allowed them to qualify for the Round of 16 for the first time since 2005.
