Meeting statistics, this game will be the first competitive meeting between the two teams at this level. They met in a friendly in February 2023, which Guatemala won 3-1.
Guatemala has won all three of their matches this year. New Zealand have also won their last three games since losing to Guatemala in February.
To that end, Guatemala are determined to match or surpass their feat in 2011 by making it to the last 16, whereas New Zealand have made it to the last 16 at the last three Under-20 World Cups but have never gone further.
Meanwhile, competition in Group A is intense, but it is thought that Argentina is the favorite for top spot in Group A, with Guatemala and New Zealand likely to compete for the other qualifying spot in the group alongside Uzebekistan.
So, both teams will be eager to start their campaign with a win to increase their chances of qualifying. New Zealand are the more experienced team at this level and come into the game as the favorites.
However, Guatemala is capable of positive results, as shown by the friendly match between the two teams earlier this year. Darren Bazeley’s team should have been able to achieve a narrow victory with goals scored at both ends of the field.
