Spain can take a lot of heart from their performance in the FIFA U-17 World Cup group stage and, despite going down to Brazil in the opening encounter, they did well to come back strongly and defeat Niger 4-0 and North Korea 2-0 in the remaining games to reach the knockout stage.

 

 

After a tough opening match, Spain are in the knockout stage of the FIFA U-17 World Cup and their first game is against another European giant with a rich footballing history — France — in a couple of days. France have made it to the pre-quarters as Group E topper after three comprehensive wins over Japan, Honduras and New Caledonia, so naturally their confidence level will also be pretty high.

But, Spain can take a lot of heart from their performance in the group stage and, despite going down to Brazil in the opening encounter, they did well to come back strongly and defeat Niger 4-0 and North Korea 2-0 in the remaining games and make it to the knockout stage.
