In the FIFA Under-20 World Cup, our country will play the second leg of the group stage against Honduras tomorrow (26). If they can build on the momentum of beating France and win two in a row, they will secure an early qualification to the round of 2.

This is Kim Hyung-yeol.


If we catch Honduras tomorrow, we will confirm our place in the round of 2 regardless of the remaining game against Gambia.

Four of the six first- and second-placed teams as well as the six third-placed teams will advance to the round of 16, as if we win two games, we will at least secure a ticket to the round of 16 for the third place in the group, even if we don't finish in the top two.

Our players, who have destroyed the 'favourites' from the first game, are determined to ride the 'Round of 6 express train'.

The protagonist of the winning goal against France, 1cm tall goalscorer Lee Young-joon, is expected to be the front-line attacking card that will open the Honduran goal once again.

Head coach Kim Eun-joong vowed to play as an elite member without any major changes from the France game.

Honduras, who have already suffered one loss, will be on the lookout for frontline striker Aseituno, who scored against Gambia.

Securing a place in the round of 16 after two games will make the tournament bracket easier and more advantageous, so the game against Honduras is an opportunity not to be missed for the Taeguk Warriors, who are trying to recreate the myth of finishing runners-up four years ago.
