U20 World Cup: Uruguay

Uruguay finished second in Group E, which enables them to qualify in the knockout round of the contest for 13 times. During their group stage, they suffered one loss, and won two games while maintaining a clean sheet. They are fortunate to come into this game from a win, as it gives them a good momentum for this match. A 1-0 win against Tunisia helped Uruguay to secure the second place in their group to secure their spot. It was a goal from Franco Gonzalez that gave Uruguay a win on their last match. In addition to their good momentum, Uruguay only suffered couple of defeats in their last 12 games across all competitions. Uruguay are looking to rely on their experience in the World Cup to earn a spot in the next round.

Uruguay will be led by the duo of Franco Gonzalez, and Matias Abaldo who both have two goals and one assist in the contest. Luciano Rodriguez, and Juan Cruz de los Santos are also both expected to be featured in their attacks.

Gambia on the other hand finished at the top of the Group F, which earned them an automatic qualification in the knockout stage. They are actually unbeaten in their group stage, winning two matches. However, it is unfortunate that they did not end their group campaign with a win, as they were held in a 1-1 draw. Gambia is one of the teams who were unbeaten by the end of the group stage, giving them confidence here. However, they do not have the experience they can rely to, as this is only the second time that they qualify here. They first appeared during the 2007 edition, where they made it to the round of 16. It is no doubt that Gambia is a capable team, and are in fact impressive in the contest so far. However, their lack of experience might be their undoing in this game.

As for Gambia, Modou Lamin Marong, Bailo Bah, and Mansour Mbye are expected to lead Gambia in this match. Muhammed Jobe, and Mahmudu Bajo on the other hand will be doing wonders in the midfield.
