[UNDER-17 WORLD CUP] Kelechi Iheanacho scored four goals in the space of 37 minutes on either side of halftime to lead Nigeria to a 6-1 win over Mexico, winner of the 2011 Under-17 World Cup, in their opening game at the 2013 Under-17 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates.

Success Isaac added a goal and had assists on Iheanacho's first two goals, while Chidiebere Nwakali added the sixth goal with a blast from 25 yards.

Canada, which has never won a game at the U-17 tournament, opened with a 2-2 tie with Austria.

Toronto FC academy players Jordan Hamilton and Eli Roubos scored to erase Austria's first-half lead, but a Nikola Zivotic scissors kick shortly after the hour mark earned Austria a share of the points.
