Korea Republic and Gambia will battle for all available points in a FIFA U-20 World Cup match in Group F.
The Gambians have already booked their spot in the knockout round and need just a point to guarantee a top-spot finish in the group. Similarly, South Korea need a point to cement themselves in 2nd position and book their place in the next round.
🗣️ "Our target has to be the 2026 World Cup. We have a good chance to do very well."
The Gambia's senior coach, Tom Saintfiet, told me.
The U20 team has just beaten France at the U20 World Cup and is top of Group F. Really exciting generation.
