Kim Eun-joong, who gained momentum by defeating the championship candidate from the first round, will meet the weakest team in the group this time and set out to solidify in the round of 16. But he shouldn’t be arrogant. Against Honduras, which pierced Korean soccer seven years ago, it is forbidden to be vigilant.

The Korean national under-20 (U-20) soccer team led by coach Kim Eun-joong will play Honduras in the 2023 FIFA Group Group F Group 2 match at Mendoza Stadium in Mendoza, Argentina at 6 am on the 26th.

In the first round of the group stage held on the 23rd, Korea caused a surprise by defeating France, which was considered a favorite, 2-1 with goals from Lee Seung-won (Gangwon) and Lee Yeong-jun (Gimcheon).

As of the 24th, in Group F, Korea is tied for first place with Gambia, who defeated Honduras 2-1, followed by France and Honduras, which are tied for third place. The best scenario Korea can expect in the second match is for Gambia not to beat France after beating Honduras. In that case, Korea will advance to the round of 16 early, regardless of the result of the final group stage match against Gambia.

Honduras, which was hit by Gambia, which was initially regarded as the weakest team in Group F, is now regarded as the weakest team in Group F. He succeeded in the U-20 World Cup a total of eight times, but never passed the group stage.

Korea has an overwhelming record of 8 wins, 1 draw and 1 loss against Honduras across all age groups. However, the only one loss is painful. This is because it happened in the quarterfinals of the men’s football at the 2016 Rio Olympics. Korea, which was in a group with strong teams such as Germany and Mexico at the time and advanced to the quarterfinals as first place in the group, faced Honduras in the quarterfinals and suffered a shock defeat 0-1, giving away its dream of a medal. At the time, Honduras, which was focusing on defense by setting up a ‘two-line bus’, inflicted a bitter defeat on Korea with a sharp counterattack.

Honduras lost their first match against Gambia, but as the score showed, it wasn’t a huge difference. Most of the teams are made up of players from their own leagues, so their organizational skills cannot be underestimated.

The player to watch out for in Honduras is striker Marco Aseituno (Real España). Aseituno, who scored six goals in the North and Central America U-20 Championship and tied for second place in the tournament, also scored a goal with a header against Gambia. Originally, the position is left striker, but in the national team, he also goes out as a forward striker. Although he is not very tall at 172cm, he is the number 1 target for alert because of his high speed and excellent jumping ability.
