Brazil coach Carlos Amadeu said despite already securing their place in the knock-out stage of the tournament, they will field their best possible eleven against minnows Niger in their final Group D match of the FIFA U-17 World Cup.
After entertaining the Kochi crowd with their dazzling performances, Brazil would look to enthral the football-crazy Goa crowd.
“The weather and climate here in Goa is quite similar to Brazil and we will have no problem in playing here. We are playing against Niger for the first time and we are going to field the best eleven in order to win and finish the league engagement with all will,” Amadeu said on the eve of the match.
“Now that we have qualified for the knock-outs after beating Spain and North Korea, we will be going into tomorrow’s game without pressure,” he added.
Amadeu said they would look to iron out their flaws, especially after wasting numerous scoring chances against North Korea.
“The boys could not find their shots on target. We have to work hard and rectify our mistakes. Hopefully we will not commit the same mistakes tomorrow (Friday) against Niger,” he said.
