Ecuador U20 is going head to head with South Korea U20 starting on 1 Jun 2023 at 21:00 UTC at Estadio Unico Madre De Ciudades stadium, Santiago del Estero city, Argentina. The match is a part of the U20 World Cup, Knockout stage.
Ecuador Under-20s and South Korea Under-20s meet at the brand new Estadio Unico Madre de Ciudades for a last 16 clash in the Under-20 World Cup on Thursday. Both nations performed brilliantly in the last edition back in 2019, but one will be heading home sooner than hoped in this early knockout game.
Despite an underwhelming run of results during their current cycle of players, the Ecuador Under-20 side have reached the knockouts on the world stage yet again. Since the setup reconvened last year after a brilliant performance in coming third at the 2019 U20 World Cup, Ecuador’s youngsters have won just eight of their 24 games.
They reached the tournament very narrowly, taking just four points from five qualifying matches to sneak in as the final qualifier from South America.
- Match: Ecuador U-20 vs South Korea U-20
- Date: 2 June

- Venue: Estadio Unico Madre de Ciudades
Ecuador U-20 vs South Korea U-20 Prediction
We say: Ecuador Under-20s 1-2 South Korea Under-20s
Ecuador have flattered to deceive both in this tournament and in qualifying despite progressing with two wins, and it is hard to take much from their victory over Fiji especially given how weak the opposition were.
South Korea started with a statement win over an ultimately disappointing France side, and the losing finalists from four years ago may spring another surprise here, as they are proving hard to beat in this competition so far.

Ecuador U-20 vs South Korea U-20 Team News
Nilson Angulo is the standout name in the Ecuador squad, having already featured for the senior side while turning out for Anderlecht at club level.
Angulo should start wide in attack, supporting Justin Cuero, whose three-goal tally so far is only bettered in the competition by Italy’s Cesare Casadei.
All five second-half goals scored against Fiji came via substitutes, so Bravo knows he has plenty of strength in depth, but he may keep much of the same side who featured throughout the groups.
