The Golden Eaglets of Nigeria will now face the Joeys of Australia in a Round of 16 game on Thursday at the ongoing FIFA U17 World Cup in Chile.

The Aussies progressed as one of the best four third-placed teams after New Zealand defeated Paraguay 2-1, and France defeated Syria 4-0.

Nigeria qualified on top of the group A with 6 points from defeating USA and hosts Chile, but lost the last group game to Croatia.

Nigeria has four titles and three runners-up finishes, making them the most successful nation in the tournament’s history.
