This Tuesday, May 30, 2017 (4:00 AM Pacific) the Korea Republic will play Portugal in the round of 16 in the U20 World Cup at the Cheonan Sports Complex in Cheonan, South Korea. Both teams were very strong in the group stages and will be looking to leave a mark in the knockout stages of the tournament.
The Korea Republic had a solid showing as the host of the competition, finishing in second place in Group B with six points behind England with seven points. South Korea defeated Guinea 3-0 and Argentina 2-1 but fell 1-0 against England in the final matchday. While the Asian side may be going into this game with depleted momentum after that loss, they are still playing at home and will be pressured to perform in front of the home crowd.
Portugal finished the group stage of the tournament being second place in Group C with four points. The European side only won one game, defeating Iran 2-1, drawing to Costa Rica 1-1 and losing to Zambia 2-1. The performances by Portugal were not impressive and this could prove to be a complicated game, especially with the Korea Republic having the home-field advantage. The match should be an interesting one in the first round of the knockout stages and should present an entertaining affair.
