Matchday 5 preview for Costa Rica in 2022

Mexico miraculously defeated England, Japan, and Nigeria in a group in 2010 and Korea Republic in the knockout round six years later. Can El Tri defeat another giant to advance, or will Germany, who has won the title three times in a row, acquire the necessary point?

Sheridan Gallagher and Daniela Galic both displayed excellent performances in this competition. In order to defeat Spain and advance while removing one of the prize favourites, Australia will need to play at the top of their game.

Colombia has only ever competed in one FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup, where it finished fourth and came home from Germany in 2010. Las Cafeteras will once again advance to the knockout stage if they avoid losing against New Zealand by a score of more than two goals. Can Linda Caicedo raise her chances of winning the adidas Golden Ball in San Jose?

Brazil has not given up in 810 minutes, or 13 and a half hours. In order to win the South American U-20 Women’s Championship in April, A Seleço kept seven straight clean sheets, and Gabi Barbieri has held back-to-back shutouts for Costa Rica 2022.

Germany is the only country to have advanced to the knockout round in each of the nine prior competitions. Losing to Mexico would put an end to their streak.

“In terms of the way they like to play, Spain is a little bit of a different beast. Naturally, we’ll be considering how we can continue to punish opponents, as well as how we may exploit Spain’s weaknesses. We are assured. We are confident in our ability to play quality football.
Leah Blayney, a coach from Australia

“We still have a little chance and will give Colombia everything we’ve got. Of course we must aspire for the opposite outcome, but first we must perform and prevail. We must accept it if it ultimately proves to be insufficient. Colombia is a good team, but we had chances against Mexico and Germany, so I’m sure we will against Colombia as well.
