Nigeria to win

Total goals under 2.5

Even though Argentina were able to have most of the ball, they were unable to find a way past the well-drilled defence of Nigeria.

South Korea U20:
South Korea will be looking to go one better in the FIFA Under 20 World Cup after reaching the final in the last edition. The team were quite disappointed after that draws against Honduras and Gambia, but the brilliant win over Ecuador has reinstated the team’s confidence. South Korea are likely to make changes to the squad since Lee Ji-han and Kang Seong-jin have been impressive.
Jun-hong, Chang-woo, Seok-hyeon, Ji-soo, Ye-hoon, Sang-yun, Joon-ho, Yong-hakm, Hyun-bin, Seung-won, Young-jun
Nigeria have had a string of disappointing exits in the last 16 stage with the most recent being in 2019. The team last made it to the quarter-finals back in 2011. The South Korea U20 vs Nigeria U20 lineups would see some crucial changes going into the quarter-finals, as manager Bosso has a selection headache. The 55-year-old watched two of his substitutes come up with impressive performances. Therefore, it is very likely that Victor Eletu and Sarki may find a place in the starting line-up.
Aniagboso, Bameyi, Ogwuche, Fredrick, Agbalaka, Daga, Nnadi, S. Lawal, Muhammad, Sarki, S. F. Lawal
Player to Watch: Samson Lawal
Samson Lawal has had a decent campaign for Nigeria with the 19-year-old grabbing one goal in the group stages. Even though he has not scored in the last three matches, the forward is expected to come back to form. The quarter-final game between South Korea and Nigeria may not involve a lot of goals. The best bet would be to back a forward like Lawal, who has been on the scoresheet to give himself some crucial confidence ahead of the match.
