With the U20 World Cup in Turkey well underway, it's time to take a look at the standings before the last round of matches in the group stage.
Here we take a look at the situation in group A:
The young Spaniards are the best team of the competition so far with two wins in just as many matches. After an impressive 4-1 win against the United States in their first fixture, they followed the victory up with a 1-0 win over Ghana - Spain only need to secure a point against France in the third round of matches to finish top of the group.
France started the tournament with a routine 3-1 victory over Ghana. However, the United States complicated matters for the French with a late equaliser in the second round. France play their third game against Spain and nothing short of a victory will bring them first place.
The United States of America
Even though they didn't have the best start to the tournament after being hammered by Spain in the opening game, the USA U20's managed to salvage a point against France, giving them a chance of progressing to the knock-out stage. A win against Ghana in the last round could send them through - as the best four third-placed teams progress to the next stage of the competition.
Ghana are at the foot of the table with zero points after losing their two matches. However, a win against USA in the last round of the group stage would give them a slim chance of going through.
