Kochi: Title favourites Brazil had an easy passage to the Round of 16 of the FIFA U-17 World Cup with three wins on the trot but they were not among highest scoring sides and their coach Carlos Amadeu today said they would look for more goals in the knock-out stage.

Brazil beat Spain(2-1), North Korea (2-0) and Niger (2- 0) without much problems to top Group B but an attacking side with strikers of the calibre of Lincoln and Paulinho were expected to score more than six goals that they have so far.

 “I am happy about the victories. I am happy we did not concede more goals during the competition. We are winning matches. Now we are in a more deeper stage of the competition. If you ask me, I would say we want to score more goals, it would be beneficial to the team,” Amadeu said at the pre-match press conference.

Talking about the level of focus and margin of error in the knock-outs, he said, “We talked a lot about this. We need to really concentrate on the next match. At first stage, we could draw, we could win, we could enter the next level. Now we must win to keep going in this competition. So we have to be more focussed for the next match.

“We are totally satisfied to be back here in Kochi. We had more time to recover from the last match to this one against Honduras. But we are looking forward to play again because we are resting for too many days.”

Asked how pleased he was with the performances of his three strikers — Lincoln, Paulinho and Brenner — Amadeu said, “The projections for their future are good. If they keep their mind, their focus, they will have very great future.”

Attacking midfielder Alan did not play in Brazil’s final group game against Niger, after starting in the first two matches, as a precautionary measure as he has already received a yellow card.

Asked about Alan coming back, Amadeu said, “We will keep this team with Alan coming back. This is our style. This is how we work. we won three matches because we give confidence to them and this is what we think. If we keep the same team, they will be more confident for the next match.
