Under-20 World Cup: Group C round-up

Published Add your comment

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 C:


Colombia are top of group C with four points. In the first game of the competition they earned a point after a tough draw with Australia, before managing to take all three against the hosts, Turkey. 

They play El Salvador in the third round of matches and only need a point to progress to the last 16.


The hosts had a great start to the tournament, thrashing El Salvador 3-0. However, after a loss against Colombia, they are in second place, level on points with El Salvador. They play their third match of the group stage against Australia, and will be looking to come out on top in front of their fans.

El Salvador

After being run-over by the hosts in the first game, El Salvador managed to come from behind to beat Australia 2-1 in the second match - increasing their chances of progressing to next stage. Even if they fail to achieve a positive result in the third round, El Salvador still have a reasonable chance of going through to the next round, seeing as the best four third-placed teams will find themselves in the last 16.


Australia are bottom of the table with a single point. Their only hope of finding themselves in the last 16 is to beat the hosts, Turkey, in their final match of the group.
