Uruguay U20 will take on Israel U20 at Estadio Único in the FIFA U20 World Cup on Thursday.
Uruguay are getting closer to achieving their dream of winning the title for the first time. Their victory against the United States in the quarterfinals was a considerable morale booster according to coach Marcelo Broli.
“We are all eying the ultimate prize and nothing short of that will quench our thirst now,” he said.
La Celeste Olímpica got the better of Team USA 2-0 in Santiago del Estero on Sunday to make it to their seventh semi-final. As the only surviving South American team in the tournament, Uruguay enjoyed the support of local attendants. However, their physicality and aggression seemingly made the difference.
Against all odds, Israel pulled off a shock 3-2 win over Brazil in the first quarterfinal clash on Saturday. One of the favorites of this edition have been sent packing by one of the most underrated participants. Israel came from behind twice to even the scoreline at 2-2 before Dor David Turgeman’s late screamer.
The big question is, can Israel continue their fairytale run in the competition when they take on Uruguay in the semi-finals? Coach Ofir Haim has some answers:
“We’ll maintain our stress-free character. We’ve achieved our objectives and have nothing more to lose. The pressure is on Uruguay.”
