This Thursday, June 1, 2017 (12:30 AM Pacific) Mexico will play Senegal in the round of 16 in the 2017 U20 World Cup at the Incheon Stadium in Incheon, South Korea. Both teams struggled in the group stages but will be looking to have a strong performance in the knockout stages.
Mexico had a disappointing run in the group stages, only accumulating four points, finishing second in Group B of the competition. El Tri started out with a slim 3-2 victory over Vanuatu then tied against Germany and finally finished off the group stages with a 1-0 loss to Venezuela. Mexico failed to score in its last two encounters and will be going into this game with a lack of momentum. This game will not be easy for the Aztec side and a ticket to the quarterfinals is far from guaranteed.
Senegal finished in second place with four points in the contested Group F of the competition behind the United States. The African side started out with a victory against Saudi Arabia, then fell to the United States and finished off the group stages with a 0-0 draw against Ecuador that ensured their place in the round of 16. Senegal, like Mexico, also did not score in its last two games but is coming in with a bit more momentum after a draw. The match should be an intense encounter with both teams wanting the victory from the duel.
