FIFA U-20 Group F Results And Table After Gambia Won Their 2nd Game And Korea Drew

Second Group F games of the competition have been played and only the best sides got favourable results to advance to the next stage.

After beating France in their opening game of the tournament, Korea Republic couldn't repeat same magic against Honduras as they settled for a vital draw on the night. A determined Honduras side never wasted their 23rd minute penalty as Ruiz scored from the spot to make it 0-1. Surprisingly, Ruiz was Red carded for an unsporting behaviour 5 minutes after. Castillo doubled Honduras lead just 7 minutes into the second half, even though they are a man down. However, Korea Republic woke up from their slumber, in the 59th minute to make it 1-2 from Kim's brilliance. Korea saved a point in the end after Park's equaliser to make it 2-2 as they capitalised on Honduras' 1 man deficit. The referee balanced the Red card just few seconds to the end of the game as he sent Korea's Choi of for an infringement.

Gambia are the second African side after Nigeria to win 2 games in the competition following their brilliant performance against France. A 14 minute own goal by Zoukrou gave Gambia an advantage with the lead in the first half. France returned to the game with a stunner in the 62nd minute with Odobert's Strike to make it 1-1. Sanyang's 69th minute strike for Gambia sealed another win for the west African side as they beat France by 2-1 on day 2 to book a ticket in the next phase. Yan Lienard's penalty safe for France during the game never mattered in the end.

Gambia are leading the Group with 6 points while Korea are second by 4 points. Honduras' draw earned them a point but could fight for a slot in the next round by winning their last Group game of the competition. How far do you think Gambia can go in this tournament?
