 Portugal was able to win group B with 7 points out of 3 games. After a 3:2 victory against Nigeria they played 2:2 against South Korea. Finally they sent home underdog Cuba with a 5:0 win. Portugal showed a lot of quality in the offense and managed to score 10 goals so far. Especially Aladje (3 goals) and Bruma (5 goals and 2 assists) threatenend opposing defenses. On the other hand we saw a lack of concentration in Portugals defense from time to time. Edgar Borges, their coach, already rested several players. Fatigue should therefore not be a factor. 
 Ghana u20 were faced with an almost impossible task from the off after being drawn in a “Group of Death” with France, Spain and USA. One sided defeats to the European sides left their hopes dangling by a thread as they faced a one of play off of sorts against USA. Both sides knew a high margin win may be enough to take them through. It was Ghana who prevailed with a 4-1 victory that took them through on goals scored. They finished level with Egypt but progressed thanks to a total of 5 goals scored, 1 more than their fellow Africans. Ghana are decent on the attack but look very shakey at the back and should not go much further in this competition.
