Ukraine U20 vs South Korea U20, Friday’s match for the final of the FIFA U20 World Cup, in the Stadion Miejski, in Łódź, Poland.
Ukraine began their journey to the finals of the FIFA U-20 World Cup with a 2-1 win against the United States. Coach Oleksandr Petrakov is doing a great job, as the win against Italy has brought the Ukrainian team to their first FIFA U-20 final.
We can say that this national team is going through a very positive phase, since in its last ten games, it takes seven wins and three draws.
In fact, Ukraine managed to eliminate Italy, but they were fortunate to win, thanks to the help of the VAR, which nullified a somewhat contentious goal for Italy.
For this final Ukraine will not be able to count on Denys Popov who was sent off after the accumulation of yellow cards.
South Korea U20
South Korea lost their first match in their race for the U20 World Cup final with a 1-0 defeat by Portugal. Since then they have recovered and never lost again until this decisive game.
The Taeguk Warriors led by Jeong-Yong Jung defeated Ecuador in the 1-0 semi-finals, thus eliminating the current South American champions.
This victory was deserved, which leaves them with high morale at the end of this Saturday. South Korea can be said to have a very talented group of youngsters since, since the opening game defeat, they have managed to find a tactical balance that led them to the final.
South Korea is in good shape, and certainly they are thinking that they can leave Poland as champions. For this final that so much desire South Korea has all the squad apt to aspire to the trophy.
Ukraine is a team that has more balance in their squad and a number of options for wider attack. I think the Ukrainians have a better team than South Korea. In this game, my prognosis is for Ukraine’s victory.
