Nigeria will take on Uruguay in an U20 World Cup Round of 16 match on Tuesday night in Istanbul.
Uruguay finished second in Group F on six points after they smashed four unreplied goals past erstwhile group leaders Uzbekistan in their final group game on Saturday in Antalya.
Croatia won the group to avoid a second straight clash with Nigeria when they defeated New Zealand 2-1 in Bursa.
The Flying Eagles defeated the Croats 4-2 at Colombia 2011.
The winners of the match-up between Nigeria and Uruguay will advance to the quarterfinals of the tournament.
The South Americans started their campaign at Turkey 2013 on a losing note when they fell 1-0 to Croatia.
They then rallied back to beat New Zealand 2-0 before their convincing win over the Uzbeks on Saturday.
Meanwhile, the Flying Eagles resumed training Saturday morning after a day off on Friday.
They will also train on Sunday night ahead of the match against Uruguay.
Kick-off for the match is 9pm local time, which is 7pm Nigerian time.
