As you already know and just knowing, the semi finals of the FIFA U-17 world cup is getting underway tonight. As expected it is going to be a very tough task for teams as the four remaining certainly are eyeing a place in the finals of this years tournament.
Mexico Vs Nigeria will be the second game of the night as Belgium will take on West African neighbors Mali in the first semi final game. From the start of the tournament, Mexico and Nigeria have been tipped favorites for the trophy but as it stands only one team will have the opportunity to at least play the finals.
The last time the two teams met was in the 2013 edition of the tournament in UAE and the Nigerian U-17 side won that game by 3 unreplied goals to win the U-17 world cup for the fourth time. Mexico and Nigeria have however met three times in the FIFA U-17 World Cup and the Nigerian U-17 side have come out winners in 2 of those occasions with Mexico winning just once.
Mexico will be looking to run down the Nigerian defense with their quick play and attack. However the strength of the Nigerian U-17 side lies in long balls and on fire striker, Victor Osimhen who has bagged in eight goals so far this tournament. Mexico U-17 team will be without the services of Ulises Torres who was handed a second consecutive yellow card in two games. The Golden Eaglets will be without Ibrahim Bamgboye who also picked up a second consecutive yellow card in the game against Brazil.
Mexico Vs Nigeria FIFA U-17 World Cup semi final game will kick off 12am Nigerian time Friday, 06 November. Who do you think will win today’s semi final game, let’s have your predictions below.
