South Korea secured their place in the quarter-finals after a pulsating 3-2 victory over Ecuador. Taking an early lead through Lee-Young-Jun’s strike, they doubled their advantage with Bae Jun-Ho’s goal.

Ecuador fought back with a penalty from Justin Cuerto, but Choi Seok-Hyun’s goal restored South Korea’s two-goal cushion. Ecuador managed to score again, setting up a thrilling finale, but South Korea held on to secure their quarter-final berth.

This is not the first time Nigeria and South Korea have met in the U-20 World Cup. The two teams clashed in 2005 during the group stage, with South Korea emerging victorious with a 2-1 win. The Nigerian side, featuring future star Mikel Obi and talented defender Taiye Taiwo, took an early lead but ultimately couldn’t hold off their opponents.

Their paths crossed again in 2013 when Turkey hosted the tournament. This time, it was Nigeria who prevailed, securing a 1-0 victory over South Korea. The Flying Eagles demonstrated their resilience and skill, ultimately advancing to the next stage of the competition.
