Following a stunning 2-0 win over the host nation, Argentina, on Thursday night, the Nigerian Flying Eagles have guaranteed their place in the quarterfinal round of the 2018 FIFA U-20 World Cup. The Flying Eagles defeated Argentina in San Juan stadium in the second half to go to the round of eight in impressive fashion.
With six points from three games four goals scored and three goals allowed. Nigeria, the third-placed team with the highest ranking, advanced to the knockout round.
In the group stage, South Korea came in second place behind Gambia after scoring four goals, giving up three, and dropping one match.
For a spot in the championship, the winner of the contest between Nigeria and South Korea will meet the winner of the contest against Colombia and Italy. By coincidence, neither team has ever won this trophy, yet both have lost in final games.
