'We are Brazil' - Watford star sends warning to Flying Eagles ahead of decisive clash 

Watford's Brazil U20 star Matheus Martins has sent a warning to the Flying Eagles ahead of their showdown at the Estadio Unico Diego Maradona in La Plata on Saturday.


The 19-year-old has made it clear thar the Brazilian U20 national team are targeting a win in their final group game of the 2023 FIFA U20 World Cup.


Martins netted his first goal of the World Cup on Wednesday night as Brazil thrashed Dominican Republic 6-0 to help boost their chances of qualifying for the knockout rounds of the tournament in Argentina. 


The attacking midfielder, who entered the game as a substitute in the 77th minute, wrapped up the scoring in injury-time, after strikes from Sávio, Marcos Leonardo, Pedroso, Giovane and Marlon Gomes. 


After losing to Italy in their opener, Brazil need a victory against Nigeria to clinch qualification to the round of 16 without depending on other results.


Speaking on his expectations ahead of the much-anticipated clash versus the Flying Eagles, Martins told the official website of the Brazilian Football Confederation: "The thinking is positive. The group is happy and we are going to have a great training session tomorrow to close the preparation and beat Nigeria and qualify in first place, God willing.


"I think it will be a great game. They will impose their game too, because they got two wins, but we are Brazil and we go in to always win".


Just like their Nigerian counterparts, Brazil landed in Buenos Aires ion Thursday afternoon, and will have two training sessions before the match against the Flying Eagles.
