Sambas seek early knock-out berth, Spain  look to bounce back with win against Niger

Kochi: An opening marquee match in their bag, hot favourites Brazil would seek to seal an early knock-out berth by beating unfancied North Korea in their second FIFA U-17 World Cup group game on Tuesday.

There is no doubt Brazil will start as clear favourites against North Korea whose morale must be down after losing to debutants Niger by a solitary goal in their opening match.
North Korea, who are never known to play an attacking brand of football, will most likely adopt a defensive game plan tomorrow also. It remains to be seen how they stop Brazil, known for their attacking flare, from scoring goals.
Meanwhile, Spain would look to bounce back from their opening match defeat and notch up a win against debutants Niger in the group match on Tuesday.
They will now have to shrug off their first defeat and beat Niger at the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium to assert their title ambitions.
