There will be one fewer Red Bull Global Soccer prospect in the 2017 Men's U-20 World Cup after this game. Either RB Salzburg's Patson Daka or RB Leipzig's Gino Fechner is going home at the end of this match.

Zambia won Group C of this tournament and the 2017 Africa U-20 Cup of Nations, which makes it the favorite over the fifth-best team out of UEFA qualifying and the third-placed team in Group B.

Zambia has been a slow starter in this competition, scoring all of its goals in the group stage in the second half of its games - and it scored none at all against Costa Rica in its last match in Group C. Germany has been in indifferent form from the start of the tournament, scoring no goals against either Venezuela or Mexico in Group B. And against Vanuatu, the Germans scored three and then allowed their opponent back into the game, managing only a 3-2 win in a match they were expected to win very comfortably.

In many ways, this seems like a mis-match, but Germany gets respect simply by virtue of being Germany at a World Cup. Zambia has every right to be considered the favorite, but its last outing showed it is not immune to the upset.

In the knockout rounds, matches that are tied after 90 minutes go to extra-time. If the game is still tied after two 15-minute periods of extra-time, then there will be a penalty shoot-out.
