South Korea U23:
South Korea will be looking to go 2 steps further these Olympic Games and a take a gold medal, bettering the Bronze they won in London. The U23 squad also won the Gold Medal 2 years ago at the Asian Games held in Incheon. They came runners-up in the 2016 AFC U-23 Championship back in January to qualify, and so have a proven track record. They’ve played 6 friendlies this year in preparation winning 4 and drawing 2, the last game a few days ago was against Sweden which they won 3-2. In the first group game they beat Pacific Island Minnows Fiji 8-0, however it was only 1-0 after 60mins. Korea showed better conditioning later in the match and start taking their chances.
Key Player: Tottenham Hotspur Striker Son Heung-Min (valued around $30million) will be a danger for any defence during this tournament. He’s played at the World Cup and Asian Cup, so he also brings in valuable experience. He played the final 20mins of the first game and scored. He then played a full 90 against Germany scoring again.

Mexico shocked many by winning the gold medal at the London 2012 Olympic Games. However since then a lot of that squad has moved on and has been replaced by the u20 Concacaf Championship winning squad. Also almost the whole squad is based in Mexico with a number of players coming from C.F. Pachuca. So they will be close and be able to play well as a team. In the first game they drew with Germany 2-2 losing the lead twice. They then beat Fiji 5-1, but were losing until early in the second half.
Key Player: 21 year old Erick Gutiérrez scored 4 of the 5 goals against Fiji and was part of the CONCACAF U20 squad. He could be the key danger man for Mexico.
