2015 FIFA U17 World Cup : Golden Eaglets lose 1-2 to Croatia

The Golden Eaglets lost 2-1 to Croatia in their final group A game at the FIFA U-17 World Cup in Chile.

The Eaglets who have already qualified for the round of 16 thanks to their victories against USA and Chile, took the lead through Victor Osimhen in the 20th minute.

All efforts by the Croatians to restore parity proved abortive as the Eaglets took the 1-0 lead into the break.

In the second half, the Croatians came out all guns blazing and were eventually rewarded in the 50th minute through Brekalo who found the back of the net.

Four minutes later, the Croatians made it 2-1, this time through Majic.
