All-Africa Final Looms At U-20 World Cup

This year’s final of the FIFA Under-20 World Cup could be between two African teams as Mali and Senegal play Serbia and Brazil respectively in today’s semi-final pairings.

Mali pulled off their biggest upset yet by beating European champions Germany 4-3 on penalties while Senegal beat Uzbekistan 1-0 for the only regulation-time win in last Sunday’s quarter-finals, three of which were decided in shootouts.

Serbia and the United States traded 18 penalties before Serbia emerged 6-5 winner of a match, which had been locked 0-0 after extra time. And five-time champions Brazil were taken to penalties for the second match in a row before beating Portugal 3-1 following another 0-0 draw.
