The group stage of the FIFA U-20 World Cup is over, and with it the picture of the immigrants and the road to the coveted trophy has finally become clear. Tonight, Honduras lost 3-1 to France (who were surprisingly left out of the final eight), thus determining Tunisia advanced from Group E.
What this means for the Israeli team, which will participate in the knockout games itself: if it beats Uzbekistan in the eighth game on Tuesday at midnight, it will almost certainly meet the big and star-studded Brazil team in the quarterfinals. Seleção, who moved up from first place in Group H, expects a comfortable encounter on paper against Tunisia in the eighth final.
If Israel makes a sensation and advances to the semifinals, it could meet Uruguay or the United States. Uruguay will meet Gambia in the final eight, while the Americans will face New Zealand.
In any case, Israel will not be able to meet a host of top teams such as England, Italy and host Argentina until the final. The first two will meet in an intriguing head-to-head battle in the eighth final. Argentina will try to avoid stumbling in the eighth against Nigeria.
