"It is not about knowing the grass but to be able to feel the soul of the stadium".

Brazil and Germany have history even at the U-17 level, with the first of their six encounters dating back to the first edition in China in 1985, when the erstwhile West Germany played out the only draw between these nations. Scoring four goals in four matches, which included a brace in pre-quarterfinal, the poacher would be a handful for the Brazilian centre-back pair to deal with. Germany have won two of three meaningful knockout games though, including a 4-3 win in the third-place match in Mexico in 2011.

"Brazil against Germany is a world classic across all ages. These information they have about players is not only from this tournament but from friendlies and South America championships also", he said about the likes of Paulinho, Alan and Lincoln attracting European clubs' interest. The Germans can take inspiration from the last time both teams clashed at the U-17 World Cup. We can not lose for fault of ours or lack of preparation. We are working since 2015, for two and half years working hard, preparing for this moment.

"In the end, one thing you can not control is the result".

Despite their brilliant run so far, Carlos-Amadeu-coached side were often blamed for not scoring enough goals against lesser opponents. "You can lose a player through suspension. It's most important that we have learnt from that defeat and stood up", he said. "Whenever both teams play against each other it's always a world class affair", Amadeu said of their great rivalry. We receive this energy in a positive way. We have trained ourselves in all kinds of situations - in some matches we emphasized on defence, and in offence in some of the others. This is one more strong generation. "It's not so easy to play against Brazil but we hope we have good defence and chance to win tomorrow". So we tried to show these guys all situations we could for this competition. We played matches when we were thinking only about defensive system and then we played another match thinking about the offensive system playing one match with our wingers and we were attacking with our midfielders.

"We made a very bad game against Iran".

Champions in 1997, 1999 and 2003, Brazil are making their 16th appearance at the U-17 finals - a record they share with the USA - and are looking to make at the semis for the sixth time. He has the ambition to always want to be a better player.

"I can not compare the generations".

"They need to be professional with whatever they are doing - whether they are having lunch or training or playing on the field". Whatever will happen from here is a effect of that. They have to enjoy the match.

On Sunday, the entire world will get to know, and so too will the Salt Lake Stadium.
