The game which was played on Tuesday ended 3-1 in favour of the Dutch U17 national side as the Europeans progressed into the quarter finals of the competition. Sontje Hansen was a big headache for the Golden Eaglets as he scored all three goals which saw his side qualify to the next stage of the tournament. The Eaglets went behind after just four minutes as the Dutch side were involved in a lovely build up before Hansen made a lovely turn in the box to score his team’s first goal. But Hansen completed his brace in the 15th minute as they Nigerian defence were caught napping to put his side back into lead by 2-1, Nigeria then went all out in search for an equalizer in the second half but could not make their attacking threat against the Netherlands count. And with ten minutes left on the clock, Ferdinard Ikenna conceded a penalty as Hansen stepped up to convert resulting spot-kick to make it 3-1.
