YB Scotland vs. YB Italy. In a clash of the two best Youth teams, Italy was the victor. But there's little doubt Scotland will get a chance for revenge in the final.
Afghanistan vs. Norway- Norway 4-1. It could have been a trap game for Norway, but Norway came out and played solid all game. Afghanistan's frustration started to show, as they took multiple cards. Head over to Norway's blog for a full recap.
Portugal vs. Northern Ireland- Northern Ireland 3-2. In a must-win for both teams, Northern Ireland continued their run as giant killers. If not for the two close losses to open the tournament, Northern Ireland would have overtaken Nigeria. They still have a chance, but they need to beat Poland and get some help. Portugal has looked lost in this tournament and are done.
Ukraine vs. Austria- Ukraine 4-0. Ukraine looked much better against a physical Austria game. Their defence can shut down weaker teams like Austria, but against better teams, like Laos, their defence is much too slow. They'll fight to get out of the group when they take on France on Sunday.
Ireland vs. Chile- Ireland 5-1. Ireland started slow, and only scored right before half to make it 1-0. But thanks to some absolutely stunning goals, they pulled off the win once again. Ireland will likely face Nigeria in the next round.
