Under20 World Cup-- Nigeria to Meet Uruguay

2013 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Turkey: Nigeria to face Uruguay in round of 16 - Nigeria, runners up in Group B, will face Uruguay in the Round of 16 Tuesday at the 2013 FIFA Under-20 World Cup in Turkey, a PANA Correspondent, covering the 21 June to 13 July competition, reported Saturday.

Uruguay finished second in Group F on six points after they smashed four unreplied goals past erstwhile group leaders Uzbekistan in their final group game on Saturday in Antalya.

Croatia won the group to avoid a second straight clash with Nigeria when they defeated New Zealand 2-1 in Bursa.

The Flying Eagles defeated the Croats 4-2 at Colombia 2011.

The winners of the match-up between Nigeria and Uruguay will advance to the quarter finals of the competition.

The South Americans started their campaign at Turkey 2013 on a losing note when they fell 1-0 to Croatia.

They then rallied back to beat New Zealand 2-0 before their convincing win over the Uzbeks on Saturday.
