Group stage form
Japan head into the encounter having not lost a game during the group stage, a run of form that saw them finish second in Group B behind Italy. The Japanese drew 1-1 in their opening game against Ecuador, before impressing throughout a 3-0 win over Mexico. A 0-0 draw with Italy duly sealed their ticket through to the knockout phase.
Korea Republic, meanwhile, won two and lost one of their three group stage matches en route to a second-place finish in Group F. After losing narrowly to Portugal, the Koreans claimed victories in their next two fixtures, beating South Africa 1-0 and six-time champions Argentina 2-1 – a win which ensured their progress to the next phase.
Taisei Miyashiro (pictured above), who shone brightly during the 2018 AFC U-19 Championship in Indonesia, scored twice against Mexico to top Japan’s goalscoring chart. Kim Hyun-woo, Oh Se-hun and Cho Young-wook have all found the net once for Korea Republic.
FIFA U-20 World Cup history
Japan made their FIFA U-20 World Cup debut as hosts in 1979. In their past nine global outings, the young Samurai Blue have progressed beyond the group stage seven times, including three last-eight finishes. Their best performance to date came in 1999 when a team featuring the likes of Shinji Ono and Junichi Inamoto lost in the final to Spain.
