How is the South Korean National Team coming along?

On the other hand, South Korea also qualified to the Round of 16 as second place with 5 points, but from Group F, which was shared with Gambia, France and Honduras.This team has been a great surprise in this U-20 World Cup, and did not secure their pass to the next round of the group until the last day where they left out a contender team such as France. South Korea reached the round of 16 playing a great game where they took a two-goal lead in the first half and thus defeated the Ecuadorian team. In the quarterfinals, the Asian team beat Nigeria thanks to a goal by Seok-Hyeon Choi in the first half of extra time to seal their place in the semifinals of this U-20 World Cup.
