This Tuesday, May 23, 2017 (1:00 AM Pacific) Venezuela will play Vanuatu in the U20 FIFA World Cup at the Daejeon World Cup Stadium in Daejeon, South Korea. The two teams are in Group B of the tournament and will look for the crucial three points from the game.
In the first match day of the competition, Venezuela achieved a shocking 2-0 victory against Germany. The European nation were heavy favorites, being known for producing young talent but Venezuela managed to get the three points from that game. Ronaldo Pena and Sergio Cordova were the players who scored the goals for the South American team in that game. The stats at the end of that encounter were very similar between both teams and the game was highly physical with Venezuela committing 29 fouls in the clash. Venezuela should be able to get another win here to emerge as a prominent team from Group B.
Vanuatu came into the competition with several people not even aware that it was a country. The island nation did fall, 3-2 to Mexico in the first game but gave a hard-fought match to the North American side. Bong Kalo and Ronaldo Wilkins scored the goals for the islanders being clinical with the few opportunities they did receive. Vanuatu will be an intriguing team to keep an eye on, not having an outstanding tradition in soccer. The match should be an entertaining one based on how both teams performed in their first games.
