This will be the second meeting between the two teams at this level. They met in the semifinals of the 2013 World Cup, with Uruguay qualifying on penalties. Four of Uruguay’s last five matches have produced less than three goals and have also seen one team fail to score.
Iraq’s best performance at the U20 World Cup was finishing fourth in 2013. Uruguay has never won the U20 World Cup but was runner-up twice in 1997 and 2013.
Uruguay is expected to compete with England for one of the top two places in Group E. Marcelo Broli’s team will look to start their campaign with a win against Iraq.
The Asian team returned to this stage after a ten year absence and despite being underdogs, they impressed at the Asian Under-20 Championships.
They also proved their worth in a 1-1 friendly against tournament favorites Brazil last month. However, Uruguay’s quality could be decisive and we predict the South Americans will pull off a convincing victory.
