The national teams of South Korea and the Gambia will play the final match at the group stage of the FIFA World Youth Championship. LiveResult.Ru gives a forecast for the game.
South Korea (under 20 years old)
At the end of two rounds, the Asian team scored four points. With this result, she takes second place in the table. It is enough for the Koreans to score one point to guarantee themselves a place in the playoffs. In the first round, the South Korean national team beat France (2:1) thanks to goals by Lee Seung-won and Lee Yoon-chun. In the 2nd round, the Asian national team lost to Honduras with a difference of two goals, but the opponent remained ten. The Koreans used the majority and upset the opponent twice. Kim Yuong Hak and Park Sung Ho scored accurate shots. However, in the 90th minute Choi Seok Hyun received a red card, and the referee thereby equalized the line-ups.
Gambia (under 20 years old)
The Gambian national team scored six points at the end of two rounds and secured an exit to the 1/8 finals. Now the African team takes the first place in the quartet. In the opening round, the Gambia defeated Honduras (2:1) thanks to the goals of Adam Boyang, who scored a double. He put the Africans ahead in the 1st minute, and scored the winning goal at the end of the meeting. In the 2nd round, the Gambian national team coped with France (2:1) and at the same time did not realize a penalty. As part of the winners, Mamin Sanyang scored a goal, and the French scored another goal in their own goal.
Statistics and figures:
- Bookmakers consider the South Korean national team the favorite of the match.
- The teams have never played each other before.
- South Korea has two wins in the last five matches.
- The Gambia has won four of its last five matches.
It seems to me that the teams will not reveal the winner. A draw will suit both teams perfectly. In this scenario, the Gambia will take first place, and the Asian team will secure an exit to the 1/8 finals of the 2023 World Cup.
