    A lot of very encouraging and impressive displays out of the U20 USA guys today.

    Great win today. Got lucky/unlucky with VAR today, but overall a solid win. Soto's goal to start the half was what that team needed after ending the first half poorly.

    As a neutral observer Portugal - Argentina should be a good match this afternoon. Underway.

    TSN pulled this match at the last minute and are playing an off-season edition of leafs lunch :facepalm:

    The TV listings still show the soccer gane and the host even mentioned that they thought they were only on radio today and were only prepped for TV at the last minute.

    Off to find a stream.

    Argentina scores, it's 1-0 32 minutes in. Portugal allows their first goal of the tournament.

    Adolfo Gaich.

    I thought Portugal was the favourite in this tournament. Argentina didn't look out of place and held the ball for the majority. From what I saw Portugal rarely threatened. I either underrated Argentina or overrated Portugal.

    Perez seals it they should now be the top of the table even if the captain misses next game. Really impressed with how compact and sounds defensively they were. Unlike last game where they were a little shaky. Roffo continues to be a weak link tho

    Gaich another nvm offside

    I see Zagadou scored for France. Good to see. He needs to work on his goal-scoring. He can never get the ball on target when he wins headers on set pieces.

    France are through after their 2-0 win over Panama. Still not convinced by anything outside the D and Cuisance. Diaby has his moments and Gouiri can finish. But this team is simply not well coached.

    They played well and did have some nice chances from around the 10 minute mark to the first goal they conceded, (probably the best 20-25 mins they’ve played so far in the tournament) but outside of that, and including the first game which was a 1-0 win over SKorea, they’ve been very poor.

    As I mentioned after the first game, someone would never guess based on current form that this group won the Euro U17 and U19 back to back.

    Looks like odds are that France will play the USA next in round unless Nigeria beat the Ukraine and somehow Qatar gets something against the usa

    Awful showing by CONCACAF so far (USA will probably advance as they play Qatar) but the champs Mexico lost all three games while today Honduras lost 12:0 to Norway. While Honduras did finish the match with 9 men the score was out of hand before both red cards and its not like Norway are some superpower either. Tahiti performed more admirably and they were in a group with the hosts + Colombia/Senegal

    Norway's Haaland scored 9 goals in the match btw

    What an awful game by the Americans. Awful coaching and awful individual play. If they play like that against France they'll get run out of the building. Nice goal by Weah, but was mostly invisible throughout the game. Having Durkin and Mendez missing out of next game will force Ramos to rotate more.

    Brighton's own U23 defender Leo Östigard also chipped in with a goal in Norway's U-20 record scoring game. Hats off to Haaland

    Norway’s Erling Haland is now the golden boot leader for this tournament with 9 goals, all scored in the 12-0 stomping of Honduras.

    He’s 6 goals up on Colombia’s Juan Hernandez and Senegal’s Amadou Sagna (who has looked very good) who are tied for 2nd with 3 goals apiece.

    That was all Honduras embarrassing themselves though, less of an achievement than it sounds.

    More than pleased to see Honduras get destroyed...means their senior mens team will not have much in the pipeline.

    Naturally FIFA are investigating the Honduras match. That was my first thought as well honestly, though you can also argue I guess Honduras being demoralized while Norway still played 100%, still look at the highlights, total lack of effort

    Final group stage games wrapping up.

    With half hr left, Portugal and South Africa are tied at 1 and South Korea is up 2-0 on Argentina. These score lines, should they remain would see Portugal knocked out of the competition the group stage.
