They lost to Zambia I their opener 1:2. Then the young European Brazilians played with a scoring draw 1:1 against Costa Rica and finally they beat Iran thanks to the own goal in the 86-th minute.

This year the Portuguese side plays under Helio Sousa’s guidance. Many young players represent the prominent national clubs such as Porto, Benfica and Sporting. Some guys play on the road. For example, Diogo Dalot from Manchester United.

Before the official start they beat Saudi Arabia U20 and England U20 0:1 and 1:3, respectively. On May 25 the nominal hosts took a narrow 1:0 victory over South Korea. Trincao was released by Jota, he surged into the box and smashed a great shot into the top corner after a one-on-one with the goalkeeper.

Argentina underperformed in the last U20 World Cup. Claudio Ubeda’s team could not be advanced to the next stage. The White and Sky Blues earned just three points in their quartet A. They have been crushed by the English Three Lions 0:3 in their opener. Then they added another defeat to their record by losing to the hosts 2:1. At last they beat Guinea with a huge score 5:0.
