[:fr]Eaglets set to face Brazil In S.Korea Tourney[:]

[:fr]Nigeria’s U-17 football team, the Golden Eaglets, will face Brazil at this year’s Suwon International Tournament in South Korea.

This was disclosed by the Nigeria Football Federation on their official website.

The game against Brazil which is the second match of the day, is slated for Wednesday June 10.


Two days later, the Eaglets will take on host South Korea before rounding off with a clash against the United States of America on Sunday June 14.

And according to coach of Nigeria’s U-17 side Emmanuel Amuneke, the tournament will be a good test for his newly recruited players.

“The four-nation Invitational is really good for us as it would further expose the players to competitions  against teams that we could meet at the World Cup in Chile,” Amuneke said.

The last time the Golden Eaglets took part in a competition hosted in South Korea was the 2007 FIFA U-17 World Cup which they won.
