A round-up of Thursday’s FIFA U20 World Cup Group matches as the tournament reaches Day 6.

Nigeria 4-0 Korea DPR
Nigeria bounced backed after their opening loss to Brazil with a 4-0 win over Korea thanks to a brace from Saviour Godwin, and goals from Kingsley Sokari and Isaac Success. The Flying Eagles will need to win their last game against Hungary to ensure automatic qualification from the group stages.

Nigeria’s U-20 coach Manu Garba has said that his half-time team talk ensured the win. “We had a plan for what we wanted to do (in the first half) but they weren’t doing the right thing. We talked to the team and in the second half and they got the job done.”
