Though already through to the Round of 16 at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Chile 2015, Golden Eaglets have predicted a tough match between Nigeria and Croatia at the Estadio Francisco Sanchez Rumoroso in

As recent as September 6, Croatia beat Nigeria 3-2 in an acrimonious encounter at the 2015 Suwon U-17 Invitational Tournament in Korea but the Golden Eaglets reckoned it would be pay back time on Friday.

"We were unlucky against Croatia in Suwon because we were leading them 2-1 until few minutes to the end of the match," recalled defender John Lazarus."They got a penalty to equalize and the winning goal later and that stopped us from winning the tournament .

"We won't allow that to happen against uson Fridayand we will work harder to win," added the diminutive defender who was in the U-13 National Team that won the London International Youth Tournament in 2010.

The two matches in Group A would be played simultaneously on Friday at 12:00 midnight Nigerian time (8:00pm local Chilean time) with the three other teams needing a win to have a realistic chance of
progressing to the Round of 16 along with Nigeria.
