2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup
Day 1, Thursday 23 May 2019
Group A & B matches
Various venues, Poland
African contenders Senegal will have the honour of opening the 2019 FIFA U-20 World Cup when they face Group A rivals Tahiti in the opening match at the Arena Lublin on Thursday 23 May, kick-off at 19h00.
The young Lions of Teranga earned their place in the tournament by finishing second at the Africa U-20 Cup of Nations earlier this year, succumbing to Mali in the final. This will be their third appearance at the U-20 global tournament.
The other Group A match kicks off at 21h30 at the Stadion Widzewa in Lodz, with host nation Poland taking on Colombia. The Poles have not appeared at the tournament since 2007, but coach Jacek Magiera is determined to lead his charges deep into the competition this time around.
Colombia, meanwhile, narrowly edged our Brazil in South America’s qualifying competition and will be looking to make a big impact in their first World Cup appearance since 2015.
Group B’s opener is perhaps the pick of the day, as Mexico take on Italy in Gydnia. El Tri have traditionally been strong performers in youth international football, but Italy have a very promising group of players coming through and will look to build on a third-place finish from the last U-20 World Cup in 2017.
Finally, at the Zdzisław Krzyszkowiak Stadium, Japan will take on Ecuador, another of the surprise packages in South American qualifying
