Stage: Round of 16

Date: Tuesday May 30, 2023

Both countries have never crossed path at U-20 level. This will be their first ever meeting.


Both teams finished in second place from their respective groups to reach the Round of 16.

For Uzbekistan, four points in group A which also had hosts Argentina, New Zealand and Guatemala was enough, same points tally also helped Israel through from group C.

Debutants at the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup, Israel did upset Japan in the last group match to go through behind Colombia.

At the Estadio Malvinas Argentinas on Tuesday, Uzbekistan will eye a 3rd quater-final spot at the U-20 World Cup after reaching that stage in 2013 and 2015.

The Asia U-20 Champions are favourites to progress but against an Israeli team, blessed with energetic youngsters, anything can happen.


No clear signs of who will emerge victorious in this one. But with Uzbekistan posting of composed defensive performances and Israel not a goal-banging side, this will be a scrappy encounter with few goals.
