The second match in Group F of the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup will see Gambia go head-to-head with Honduras at the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas in Mendoza.

Gambia U20 vs Honduras U20 Match Preview

Gambia

The Young Scorpions of Gambia booked their place in the FIFA U-20 World Cup after finishing as runners-up in the U20 African Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Egypt, the farthest they have gone in the continental competition. They're making their second appearance in this competition and will be eager to make a good impression of themselves on the world stage. Ahead of this match, Gambia have won five and lost one of their last six games, scoring ten goals and conceding two.

Honduras

Los Catrachos are making their 9th appearance at the FIFA U-20 World Cup stage after having a good run in the CONCACAF U20 Championship in June 2022. The Central American country will aim to make it past the group stage for the first time in their last eight showings. They were humiliated in their last FIFA U-20 World Cup in a 12-0 goal feast by Norway, with Manchester City's Erling Haaland scoring nine goals on the day.

Luis Alvarado and his boys are coming into this tournament after five wins and three losses in their last eight matches, scoring 15 goals and conceding six. They'll fancy their chances against Zambia in a match we feel will be keenly contested.
