As football pundits says, the fight between the two teams would be a replica of the 2003 edition of the FIFA U-17 event, as when the teams locked horns in the final, the victory was with the Brazilians lads, as they tamed their opponents, Spain, by a solitary goal.
So, the Spaniards would be entered in the fray with the determination of avenching their defeat and they would take out all their resources and strategies from their kitty, through their coach Santiago Denia Sanchez, while the much experienced Brazilian guys would take their rivals, Spain, with much confidence of their success records.
Mr Sanches already made it clear their mission during practice session, they are confident that they could win the title, the first time, as earlier occasions, they had to satisfy the second and third spot. Hence, the guys trained by Sanches took a pledge that at any cost they will fly back with the coveted title.
On the other hand, Brazilian coach Carlos did not take their opponents lightly and said they would counter their all tactics, and they had already watched the Spaniards previous matches and analyse how they do and attack in the field.
