Will Messi’s country play the quarter-final against the country that won the World Cup in Qatar? It is expected that the match will be much more difficult than expected. There is a possibility that Korea will meet Argentina in the quarterfinals, the World Cup winner and Messi’s home country. On the 29th (Korean time), Kim Eun-joong finished the 3rd match of group F against Gambia in a scoreless draw, securing 2nd place in the group with 1 win and 2 draws, advancing to the round of 16.안전놀이터

Four years ago, in the semifinals of the 2019 Poland Tournament, Lee Kang-in (Mallorca)’s exquisite free-kick pass followed by Choi Jun (Busan)’s winning goal, Korea won 1-0. If Korea beats Ecuador again, the next opponent will be the winner of the match between Argentina and Nigeria.

If the adult national team led by Lionel Messi (Paris Saint-Germain) wins the tournament held at home in Argentina, which held last year’s World Cup trophy in Qatar, it will enjoy the honor of standing at the top of FIFA-sponsored competitions consecutively.

Argentina did not qualify for the U-20 World Cup finals, but joined Group A in the group stage a month before the tournament due to ‘heavenly luck’ in which Indonesia was disqualified as the host country. As the voices of Indonesian Muslims opposed the entry of Israel, which passed the European qualifiers, grew louder, FIFA revoked the hosting rights and chose Argentina as the new venue.

Meanwhile, Lionel Messi also won the Golden Ball in the 2005 competition.

Argentine, with 3 victories, is the strongest country along with Brazil…. It is not an easy opponent for Korea.

The Argentine national team, led by coach Javier Mascherano, who made a name for himself as a world-class midfielder during his active career, achieved all wins in the group stage. While he scored 10 goals in 3 games, he is showing solid performance, conceding only 1 goal. In fact, in this competition, it is called the strongest along with Brazil.

It is also burdensome to face the enthusiastic cheering of the home fans if we meet Argentina in the quarterfinals. However, Nigeria, facing Argentina, is not an easy team either. In Group D, they won 2 wins and 1 loss side by side with Brazil and Italy, but were pushed out on goal difference and advanced to the round of 16 in 3rd place in the group. Italy, who defeated the ‘strongest’ Brazil 3-2, lost to Nigeria 0-2. As such, the U-20 stage has many variables.

If they pass the round of 16, the quarterfinal will be held on the 5th of next month at the same place as the round of 16, the Santiago del Estero Stadium.
