Kim Jung-ho finishes third in group, faces disadvantage in round of 16

Kim Eun-joong’s U-20 team has qualified for the round of 16 at the FIFA U-20 World Cup.

Let’s go to the reporter. Reporter Kim Dong-min!

Depending on how high you finish in your group, the team you face in the round of 16 will be different, but first of all, you have to avoid the third place in your group?

Yes, that’s right. Because if we finish third in our group, we could face Brazil in the round of 16 like we did at the Qatar World Cup.

Our national team is currently second in Group F with one win and one draw.

We have four points, and we have our last game tomorrow at 6:00 a.m. against The Gambia.

Japan, by the way, has slipped to third place in the group with one win and two losses, as they came from behind to lose 2-1 in their third group game against Israel earlier today.

There are six groups in this tournament.

The top 12 first- and second-place teams from each of the six groups will qualify for the round of 16, while the top four third-place teams from each of the six groups will join them in the round of 16.

The top three teams from each group will be seeded in the order of the teams with the most points, and at the end of the group stage, Slovakia from Group B and Japan from Group C are tied with three points.

Neither of these two teams can get ahead of Korea, which has four points with one win and one draw, so Korea has qualified for the round of 16.

This marks the third consecutive round of 16 for Korea, which finished as the runner-up in the 2017 tournament and the runner-up in the 2019 tournament.

We’re in the round of 16, but if our team loses to Gambia and we go to the round of 16 as the third-place wild card, we have a bad draw.먹튀검증

Because we could face Colombia or Brazil, the best team in the world.

If we finish second in the group, we’ll likely play Ecuador in the round of 16, and if we finish first, we’ll likely play Uruguay, who lost to England, in the round of 16.

It’s a round of 16 bracket that looks better for Group 1 and 2 than for the wild card Group 3.

I expect our players to give their best until the last game.

Until then, I’m Kim Dong-min from YTN’s sports department.
