Three days after the sensational victory over Japan in the last round of the group stage of the FIFA U-20 World Cup, Israel's youth team currently plays against Uzbekistan in the round of eight. Ofir Haim and his players, who so far lost to Colombia, drew with Senegal and beat the samurai, will try to overcome another hurdle in the form of the Asian champions.
In recent days, the professional staff of the national team tried to bring the players down to the ground and, of course, engaged in studying the opponent and tactical training. The Uzbeks finished the group stage similar to Israel with 4 points, after losing to host Argentina, drawing with New Zealand and beating Guatemala in the final round.
About 3,000 fans from the city's Jewish community came to the stadium in Mendoza to support the Blue and White and will hope to see Israel go through another stage with Brazil or Tunisia waiting in the quarterfinals.
