Uruguay U20 and Italy U20 will be chasing their first U20 World Cup title when they meet in the final showdown of the tournament on Sunday.
The Azzurrini’s best run is a third-place finish in 2017, while Uruguay have twice reached the final – in 1997 and 2013 – but ended up taking home the silver medals on both occasions.
Marcelo Broli’s side defeated the impressive Israel outfit by a solitary goal in the semi-finals, where Italy overcame South Korea 2-1.
