This Thursday, May 25, 2017 (4:00 AM Pacific) New Zealand will play Honduras in the U20 World Cup at the Cheonan Sports Complex in Cheonan, South Korea. Both teams are trailing France in Group E of the tournament and will look for the three points from the encounter.
New Zealand had a pretty exciting start to the tournament, drawing 0-0 to Vietnam. The scoreline was not reflective of the game as both teams had plenty of opportunities but both goalkeepers were in top form. New Zealand’s keeper, Michael Woud had to be the man of the match with seven crucial saves in the game. The encounter was very physical with 48 total fouls in the game, 20 of the 48 coming from the islanders. This match should be another close, contested duel for the Kiwis with no clear favorite heading into the duel.
Honduras suffered a huge 3-0 loss to France to start its U20 World Cup campaign and will be looking for some points from this encounter. Honduras was dominated in that game against the European nation, having only 44-percent possession and only two shots on target. A loss here would almost guarantee that the Central American team does not make it to the next round which should motivate the team to have a strong performance. The game should be a hard-fought encounter between two teams that do play a strong, physical style of play.
