In their first Group B game, the Golden Eaglets survived an early scare from Hungary to cruise to a 4-2 win with captain Samson Tijani netting a brace.
For the South Americans who are making a fifth World Cup appearance, they profited from two first-half goals to silence Australia.
This encounter will be the first meeting between both countries, and victory for either team would guarantee a place in the knockout phase.

Nigeria will become the first country to ensure their place in the 2019 U17 Fifa World Cup if they manage to beat Ecuador.
Manu Garba’s boys were pegged down by a third-minute goal by Hungary; however, they put an attacking masterclass in the second half to triumph 4-2 at Estadio Olimpico.
Ahead of Tuesday’s clash ‘Little Ronaldo’ Peter Olawale talked up the Golden Eaglets’ determination after scaling the Magyars’ hurdle.
"Hungary are a good team but they got tired towards the end of the game and it was more difficult for them to control our speed,” he told Goal.
"Against Ecuador, we hope to be at our best again so that we can qualify for the knockout stage before taking on Australia.”
Still basking in the euphoria of defeating Australia, Ecuador would be aiming for the five-time world champions’ scalp.
The bar has been set high by Jose Mayorga and El Tri coach will no doubt be expecting his players to deliver qualification early.
