If Gambia loses, this team will meet in the round of 16
In the U-20 World Cup, the Korean national soccer team succeeded in advancing to the round of 16 three times in a row regardless of the result of the game against Gambia on the 29th.
In this tournament, the 12 teams in first and second place in each group and the top four teams out of the six third-place teams in each group advance to the round of 16.안전놀이터
Among the third-place teams that finished the group stage, Slovakia in Group B only had 3 points, followed by Japan in Group C with 3 points, securing Korea’s advance to the round of 16.
This is because Japan finished third in Group C with 1 win, 2 losses and 3 points.
Even if Korea, which has already won 4 points, loses to Gambia and drops to 3rd place, it will advance to the round of 16 by entering the ‘top 3rd and top 4 teams’ ahead of Slovakia and Japan.
Head coach Kim Eun-joong, while paying attention to stamina for the round of 16 and beyond, vowed to stop Gambia’s winning streak and ride the upward trend again.
If Korea beats Gambia and takes first place in Group E, Uruguay or Tunisia, who are strong second place in Group E, will meet.
If they finish second in Group B, they will play against Ecuador, who placed second in Group B, in the round of 16.
If they advance to the round of 16 in 3rd place, they will face the strongest Brazil or undefeated Colombia, and the quarterfinals can be a thorny road.
