Nigeria, record winners of the competition (with four titles to their name), have been in stunning form winning three of their four matches in the tournament thus far.

Emmanuel Amuneke ‘s charges have scored 14 goals while letting in just three in their four games so far while Brazil have been solid, if not spectacular so far.

The South Americans recovered from a shock opening day defeat to South Korea and have since gone on to win their next three games of the tournament.
