This Tuesday, May 23, 2017 (4:00 AM Pacific) South Korea will play Argentina in the U20 FIFA World Cup at the Jeonju World Cup Stadium in Jeonju, South Korea. The two teams are in Group A of the tournament and will look for the win in this encounter.
The host nation, Korea Republic started off with a nice 3-0 victory over Guinea in the first match day of the competition. Possession was even in that encounter and Korea had fewer scoring opportunities but were able to finish it’s few opportunities. Korea’s goalkeeper, Song Bumkeun was an important figure in the game, keeping a clean sheet and getting three saves in the encounter. The host nation will face a tough opponent but should be able to get the three points especially in front of a home crowd.
Argentina is known for producing potent, young talent over the years but suffered a huge defeat in its first game in this tournament. The South American team fell 3-0 to England who is a formidable team but a much more competitive game was expected. Argentina had 59-percent possession in the encounter compared to England’s 41-percent and had 22 attempts compared to England’s seven. La Albiceleste did not have a bad game and showed signs that they are capable of having some strong performances in the tournament. This game should be an intriguing one and is one that Argentina must win to have an opportunity to advance in the tournament.
