South Korea U20 to bounce back

South Korea U20 is aiming to win against Ecuador U20 with hopes of bouncing back from their finals loss during the 2019 edition.

In this World Cup, this is already the 16th appearance of South Korea, while Ecuador is on their fifth. South Korea and Ecuador both finished their group stage in the second place, which earned them their place in the knockout stage. South Korea is two points behind the top team in Group F, drawing twice and winning just one. Ecuador on the other hand is three points behind their group leader after winning to two, and losing one match. This meeting will be on June 2, 2023, at 5:00 AM (GMT+8).

South Korea U20

U20 World Cup: South Korea

South Korea is one of the most-awaited teams in this U20 World Cup after they finished as the runners-up during the 2019 edition. They finished the group stage at the second of Group F, with five points. Their group stage is a little underwhelming, as they drew their first two games. However, they are still lucky to pick up a win on their last match, just in-time for their knockout stage. What gives South Korea an additional confidence from that win is the fact that they defeated France. They took a 2-1 win against France, a very powerful team. Coming into this crucial match, it is expected that South Korea will maintain their energy both in attacking and defending. However, despite their high level of power, they need to be prepared by the individual talent and counterattacks of their opponent.

Coming from his ban on their match against Gambia, Kim Joon-hong will return in this important match, replacing Moon Hyeon-ho. This is also the case for Choi Seok-hyun who sustained dismissal on their last match due to a yellow card. However, for this match, he will finally return, to provide help for his team.

Ecuador U20

U20 World Cup: Ecuador

Ecuador is looking to rely on their capabilities in defense to win this match against South Korea. Ecuador finished at the second of Group B with six points. From these three matches in the group stage, they won twice, and lost to the other one. Ecuador have improved so much, which they have shown this season. They are a well-organized team, and have been impressive especially when it comes to passing. It is just unfortunate that Ecuador is coming into this match from a 1-0 loss against the USA. However, despite the loss, Ecuador put up a good fight, showing a superb performance despite their loss. Their attacking phase is really commendable, which is why defenders are having a hard time going against them. This is what they are looking to take advantage of, for this match.

Nilson Angulo have been phenomenal for Ecuador, leading his squad in the tournament. Justin Cuero are also producing numbers for Ecuador, with three-goal tally. Fortunately, Ecuador does not have a fresh injury concern that would affect this match.
