Uruguay vs Israel Preview:
The stage is set for the first semi-final of the U20 world Cup in which Uruguay take on Israel in what ensures to be a very thrilling encounter. Marcelo Broli’s men have been near perfect during the course of this World Cup. They started their campaign with a 4-0 win against Iraq, following that was the only game that they have lost in this tournament and the only game where they have not kept a clean sheet. This was the 3-2 loss against England. However, since then it has been pretty plain sailing for the Uruguay U20 team, beating Tunisia in the last group game before beating both Gambia and USA in the knockout stages securing them a semi-final spot.
Their opponents Israel, however, have had a slightly rougher road to the semi-final. They scraped through the group stage with just a draw and a win finishing in second place. They then had their round of 16 game against Uzbekistan. This game went right down to the wire with Khalaili from Israel scoring in the 90+7 minute which sent them to the quarter-final. The quarter-final between Israel and Brazil was one of the games of the season. Twice Brazil took the lead through Marcos Leonardo and Matheus Nascimento, and twice they were pegged back by Anan Khalaili and Hamza Shibli, before Dor Turgeman popped up with a 105th-minute winner to break Brazilian hearts, which would have already been beating at an incredibly fast rate when Israel missed two penalties in the second half of extra time.
