A little soccer with your Friday morning breakfast? Allow Once A Metro to recommend this game: the two best teams in Group A of the 2017 U-20 World Cup; home team South Korea cheered on by what should be a substantial crowd, England eager to make an impact on a competition it hasn't been particularly relevant to for about 20 years.
The Koreans are already assured qualification for the knockout rounds; England is a decent bet to make it through also, but at least a point from this game would put that issue beyond doubt. In truth, a draw suits both teams: South Korea would win the group, England would advance to the round of 16 without having to worry about what happens in the other Group A game (Argentina vs Guinea) or elsewhere in the group stage.
But Korea's squad includes one of the stars of the tournament to date - Lee Seung-woo - and this match is being played in his home town, Suwon. If the Barcelona prospect isn't rested, he'll surely want to put on a show. And England can't afford to take this game too lightly - a heavy loss would open the door for Guinea to sneak into second place in the group.
If you need a few more reasons to give this game a look: the winner of Group A - who will emerge from this game - will play the third-placed team from Group C, D, or E: could be CONCACAF qualifiers Costa Rica or Honduras, depending on how other results shake out. The runner-up in Group A - quite likely to emerge from this game - will play the runner-up of Group C, which could be Patson Daka's Zambia or Costa Rica (long shots to finish second in their group for different reasons, but possible nonetheless).
The standings in Group A are as follows:
|Position||Team||Played||Won||Drawn||Lost||Goals For||Goals Against||Goal Difference||Points|
South Korea wins the group with a win or tie. England wins the group with a win, in which case the Koreans will finish second. The draw would guarantee England the runner-up spot. A loss for England could allow Guinea into the runner-up spot, if it can manage a big win over Argentina.
