The Ecuador U20 national team will face the South Korea U20 national team in Round of 16 of the 2023 FIFA U20 World Cup on Thursday, June 01, 2023. Live streaming of Ecuador U20 vs South Korea U20, preview, lineup predictions, and how to watch the match live broadcast, can be watched in this article.
U20 Ecuador managed to qualify for the round of 16 as runners-up in group B. They won over U20 Slovakia and U20 Fiji, but lost to the U20 United States. Meanwhile, U20 South Korea only finished second in Group F.
The U20 South Korean team surprised by beating the U20 France, but then drew against the U20 Honduras and U20 Gambia. South Korea’s U20 performance has been inconsistent and that is why they are rated lower than Ecuador’s U20s.
Both teams finished second in their respective groups to qualify for the knockout stage. Ecuador crushed Fiji 9-0 in their last group game to collect six points under Group B leaders, the United States. South Korea closed out with a goalless draw against Gambia, the surprise package of Group F, to pick up five points.
Justin Cuero is Ecuador’s U20 top scorer with 3 goals in this tournament. Meanwhile, José Klinger and Alan Minda also scored 2 goals. On the other hand, Lee Young Jun, Lee Seung Won, Kim Yong Hak each contributed 1 goal for U20 South Korea at the 2023 U20 World Cup.
The Taegeuk Warriors are expected to maintain a high-energy attack and defense pattern, which they can sustain with great stamina. But they could struggle against Ecuador’s individual quality and dangerous counter-attacks. In addition, South Korea’s weakness in the air was exploited by a skilful Ecuador header.
Even though the South Korean U20s once amazed them by being runners-up to the 2019 U20 World Cup. However, with their current performance, it will be difficult for them to repeat this achievement. Ecuador was beaten 1-0 by South Korea in the only meeting so far in 2019.
