Angola will be setting trade relations aside and face host Brazil when both sides clash in the final group stage match of the ongoing under 17 World Cup in Brazil.
The two countries enjoy very strong trade relations, perhaps as a result of their being former colonies under the Portuguese empire. But the time has come when the young boys of these two sides will slug it out on the field.
Both sides are tied on six points ahead of their clash on Saturday. However, it is Brazil who is on top with goal difference.
As host, Brazil will probably want to maintain their winning streak and finish top on home soil, not minding how the Central African side will feel. But Angola who shocked Canada with a late goal to win 2-1, will be hoping up to shock the Brazilians before their fans.
Although Angola will play come into the match as underdogs, they will be hoping to prove a point.
