Sokari: Golden Eaglets Must Attack Against Brazil

 By Izuchukwu Okosi:

Former Flying Eagles star Kingsley Sokari believes the best formation to defeat Brazil in Nigeria's FIFA U-17 World Cup quarter finals clash on Sunday will be to play attacking football.

The Enyimba midfielder knows a few tips about the Brazilian game having played and lost against their U-20 side at this year's FIFAU-20 World Cup in New Zealand.

The junior Selecao defeated New Zealand 1-0 on Wednesday night to book a place against the Golden Eaglets on Sunday.

"The Eaglets are really having a good U-17 World Cup but that game against Brazil won't be an easy one," Sokari told Completesportsnigeria.com.

"Brazil at any level are a big threat so with their pedigree in football, you will expect a difficult match for our boys; the Eaglets."

Sokari went on how he wants the team to approach the game.

"The 6-0 win over Australia will give the Eaglets more confidence going into the match.

"The best way to defend is to attack so they should go all out. We have to and not sit back and invite pressure to the defence," the midfielder added.

Emmanuel Amuneke's team have scored 14 goals at the ongoing U-17 World Cup in Chile and conceded three.

    Emmanuel Amunike had been one of my most favorite players.  Amunike would lead Nigeria to glory and I personally tip victory at the end of this current U-17 tournament.  He had been a player who secured most Nigerian crucial goals during his and since he knew when goals are to be scored, in the same spirit he coaches his players.  I think he is a coach to be reckon with since he knows his onions.
