Santiago - Brazil coach Carlos Amadeu has rued his side's
lack of efficiency in attack in the aftermath of the 3-0 loss to Nigeria at the
FIFA U17 World Cup.
Indeed, the South Americans had decent chances to take the
lead through Rogerio and Evander before Victor Osimhen broke the deadlock in
the 29th minute, then Michael and Anumudu both scored in the space of four minutes,
which ended the game as a contest.

''We knew it was important for us to make the most of our
opportunities, especially if we dominated the game at some point, but we
didn't.'' Carlos Amadeu admitted.
''Their goals were scored in only five minutes because of
specific chances, not because we were not balanced.
''We would like to have put Nigeria behind on the
scoreboard, but we failed to score. For these kids, everything that has
happened here is part of their learning process.''
Sunday night's game at the Estadio SausalitoVina Del Mar was
the first time Nigeria faced their Brazilian counterparts in a competitive
fixture at Under 17 level.For
