Brazil will be in action at the Salt Lake Stadium in Kolkata on the last day of the FIFA Under-17 World Cup, potentially in front of a capacity crowd that has embraced them as their own.
It is expected to be free-flowing contest between Brazil’s natural flair and the raw power and speed of an African side. Brazil, the pre-tournament and crowd favourites, were distraught after their 1-3 loss to England in the semifinals on Wednesday. They would want to salvage some pride and give the Kolkata crowd one last chance to lustily cheer them.
Predicted Line Up:-
Brazil (4-3-3): Brazao, Wesley, Vitao, Lucas, Victor, Weverson, Marcos, Alan, Paulinho, Lincoln, Brenner
Mali (4-1-4-1): Koita, Boubacar, Konate, Diaby, Fofana, Traore, Jiddou, Samake, Doucoure, Ndiaye, Drame
