Five-time champions, Nigeria’s Golden Eaglets, have been drawn against the Netherlands in the last 16 at the ongoing FIFA U17 World Cup in Brazil.
The Nigerian side, who topped Group B with six points, will on Tuesday morning aim for the quarter finals of the competition.
Netherlands surged into knockout phase contention by soundly defeating USA 4-0 in their Group D finale.
Ajax youth player Sontje Hansen struck his team’s first two goals and assisted the third to lead the Oranje charge.
Hansen put the Netherlands ahead four minutes from half-time, dribbling to create space in the box and beating USA goalkeeper Chituru Odunze at the near post.
His second goal was a low, first-time rip from 12 yards of Anass Salah Eddine’s cross.
In addition to assisting Mohamed Taabouni’s 70th-minute goal, Hansen also won a penalty in the 77th minute.
The Dutch side’s three points earned them a place in the round of 16 as one of the four best third-placed teams.
