Where to watch Portugal U20 vs Korea Republic U20 on May 25

May 24, 2019 By Michelle Bonsu
2017 under-20 World Cup hosts Korea open up their campaign with a clash against Portugal on Saturday, May 25th. Live Soccer TV's match preview provides where to watch Portugal vs Korea from wherever you're based.

How they got to the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup: Portugal vs Korea

Portugal qualified for the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup, which is the team's 11th overall and fifth consecutive since 2011 thanks to winning their fourth UEFA EURO under-19 title. They successfully saw off Italy in a thrilling 4-3 final match that went to overtime to book their ticket to Poland last year, and will hope to follow up their continental success with an even bigger trophy on the world stage.

Meanwhile, Korea will be making their 15th appearance at this competition and their second straight participation after hosting it in 2017. Despite finishing as runners-up to surprise winners Saudi Arabia in the 2018 AFC under-19 Championship, it was still enough to make sure that the Red Devils earned one of the four spots allocated to AFC sides for the upcoming tournament.

Portugal vs Korea: History at the FIFA U-20 World Cup

To date, Portugal have won this competition twice (with back to back victories in 1989 and 1991) as well as finished as a runners-up in 2011. They are now making their 12th appearance and have consistently done well since making their debut in 1979; in fact, the only time Portugal didn't clear the group stages was in 1993, when they failed to win a single game and left Australia without picking up any points.

By contrast, South Korea have historically struggled to make an impact until recently, with their best ever result being a fourth-placed finish back at the 1983 edition staged in Mexico. Two years ago, when they served as hosts, they bowed out early in the round of 16, and the Taegeuk Warriors will certainly be hoping to at least get to the first knock out rounds this time around in Poland as they have gotten out of their group at every single tournament since 2009.

Portugal vs Korea: Facts and stats

  • Portugal have won this competition on two occasions, but it has been well over 20 years since they last lifted the trophy (in 1991)
  • South Korea have never featured in the finals. Their best result was fourth back in 1983
