Japan vs Colombia: The World Cup U20 Match between Japan and Colombia on May 25 at 2:45 pm Nepal time, 09:00 UTC Global time.

At the FIFA U20 World Cup on Wednesday, Japan U20 will face Colombia U20 at Estadio Nico Diego Armando Maradona.

Following their respective victories in their first matches, both sides are looking for a second victory to solidify their positions as the group’s top teams. Colombia is in first place after defeating Israel 2-1 on Sunday, while Japan defeated Senegal 1-0 to grab second. The contest’s eventual winners will advance to the round of 16.

Samurai Blue’s highest finish at the competition was second place in the 1999 Nigerian edition. Since they made their debut in 1979, they have three times advanced to the quarterfinals. Japan had an almost faultless run at the AFC U20 Asian Cup in March, dropping just a 5-3 penalty shootout decision to Iraq in the semifinals.

Some of Colombia’s players have played for elite European teams, including goalkeeper Alexei Rojas of Arsenal, defender Devan Tanton of Fulham, and Yáser Asprilla of Watford. Gustavo Puerta, who scored the game’s first goal against Israel, currently plays for FC Nürnberg in Germany, while Daniel Luna is under contract to Mallorca in Spain.


Colombia will probably once again rely on its dazzling individualism to outperform the Japanese, whose integrated style may be hard to beat. Kuryu Matsuki, Japan’s only other goal scorer yet, may answer Puerta’s bid for his second goal.

Based on their advantages in the offensive and midfield, Colombia is predicted to win.

Prediction: Colombia U20 1-2 Japan U20
