    Probably saw it late. It was a bit unexpected.

    Seems that it went off his arse, which was onside at the time.

    Ecuador are the strongest team left in the competition. Will be cheering them on to win the whole thing.

    Nicely done. Should have won it more comfortably but a very exciting team. Viva Ecuador!

    Was Espinoza's goal not offside?

    Commentators seemed to think so granted it was an American team so perhaps biased. I thought replays looked offside but perhaps Espinoza was played onside somehow.

    Was an angle that showed he was clearly onside. Didn't show it til a few minutes after the goal though.

    This tournament has been amazing. Lots of matches have been close with a significant amount of drama in them. Korea vs. Senegal is currently in extra time thanks to a last-gasp Korea equaliser, and they're currently leading 3-2.

    Lee Kang-In has been exceptional. Along with Barco, he's been the best player in the whole tournament.

    The Senegal Korea match was hilariously low on quality. Senegal equalized with the last kick of extra time and it went to penalties.
    Korea missed their first two and still went through :lol:

    Raw talent but miles better than Jovane.

    I agree he is still "Muito Verde" but you can see his potential when he gets hold of the ball.

    Jovane physically is a beast. The rest is the problem. He could maybe be a bench player but nothing more.

    It looks the final is going to be Ukraine vs South Korea. A new under 20 World Champion. Interesting competition where none of the so called favourites reached this stage.

    Italy pretty unlucky to go out. Played the best they have all tournament, scored a completed screamer last kick as well and VAR ruled it out. 100% should have stood.

    Final should be a good watch, Korea been very inconsistent. Quite odd they’re here after being dominated by South Africa for 45, comfortably 2nd best to Japan, completely shut down by Portugal and scoring last kick v Senegal to stay in.

    Dammit, I missed these due to having the Women's World Cup shoved down my throat.

    You mean Korea became a very Italian type of team all of sudden? I actually think you're right, but their victory, if they win, will be memorable.
