The Italy U20 national team will face the South Korea U20 national team in Semi-finals of the 2023 FIFA U20 World Cup on Thursday, June 08, 2023. Live streaming of Italy U20 vs South Korea U20, preview, lineup predictions, and how to watch the match live broadcast, can be watched in this article.
The South Korean U20s are in very impressive form. They are unbeaten in the last 10 matches. At this year’s U20 World Cup in Argentina, the team from Ginseng Country won 2 and drew 3 matches within the official 90 minutes.
Italy must not underestimate South Korea. It must be remembered that at the U20 World Cup which took place two years ago in Poland, South Korea also qualified for the final and then lost 1-3 to Ukraine. South Korea will certainly be looking to reach a second successive final in hopes of picking up another colored medal after losing to defending champions Ukraine in 2019.
In this year’s tournament, Italy won 4 of the previous 5 matches. However, the defense of the team from the shoe-shaped country has been problematic with 4 out of 5 matches without a clean sheet.
Therefore, it is highly likely that this match will end in a draw within the official 90 minutes. Maybe, Italy will have to wait until the penalty shootout to beat this Asian representative player.
Midfielder Samuel Giovane picked up an injury in the semi-final against Colombia. This is a big loss for Italy, considering that midfielder Luca Lipani is also still recovering for the game against South Korea.
South Korea has the strongest squad. Compared to the quarter-finals, striker Kang Seong-jin probably won’t be in the starting line-up against Italy. Because in the game against Nigeria, he played badly and was substituted early in the second half.
On the other hand, Italy showed overwhelming strength by defeating Colombia 3-1 in the quarter-finals and advancing to the semifinals for the third time. The team in blue is the strongest candidate to win the title among the four remaining teams in the tournament this time.
In addition, Italy will have an advantage in aerial ball situations due to their superior posture, but the Taegeuk fighters are also very skilled at disrupting the opponent’s play in the midfield area.
