Nathan has been in impeccable form for Brazil during this FIFA U17 World Cup.

Brazil U17s are in scintillating form this month and are still hot favourites to triumph in the FIFA U17 World Cup.

They soared to the top of their group with three wins out of three, and beat Russia in the round-of-16 to reach the quarter finals.

They averaged five goals a game during the group stage, celebrating two 6-1 wins over Slovakia and host nation UAE, before beating Honduras 3-0 in their final game.

The next round wasn’t anymore difficult for the Samba stars, who beat Russia 3-1.

Their form has been reflected in the individual player stats, with three of the top four top goalscorers being Brazilian.

Boschilia tops the scoring charts with six goals with Nathan in second with four. However, Nathan has contributed five assists to his team’s cause, while Mosquito (in fourth) has scored four and assisted two.

Only Nigeria’s Kelechi Iheanacho breaks up the pattern of the top four, with four goals for his country. Iheanacho is reportedly being tracked by Arsenal.

Watch highlights from all Brazil’s games through each individual video below.

  2. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have some experience with
    something like this. Please let me know if you run into anything.
    I truly enjoy reading your blog and I look forward to
    your new updates.
