How the FIFA U-20 World Cup Poland 2019 is making history


FASTEST GOAL ๐Ÿ‡ธ๐Ÿ‡ณ

Just 9.6 seconds after Poland 2019 kicked off, Amadou Sagna had the ball in the back of the net in Lublin. The Senegal forwardโ€™s speedy strike is the fastest in U-20 World Cup history.

MOST GOALS IN ONE GAME ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ด

Erling Haland found the back of the net nine times against Honduras, eclipsing the previous single-game scoring record by a staggering three goals. His teamโ€™s 12-0 triumph also set a record for largest margin of victory.

KIWIS START STRONG ๐Ÿ‡ณ๐Ÿ‡ฟ

New Zealand romped through their first two games, registering their biggest win ever (5-0 v Honduras) and their first one against European competition (2-0 v Norway).

HOSTS GO THROUGH ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฑ

Poland put on a show for the impassioned crowds in Lodz during the group phase, reaching the last 16 for the first time in 12 years and only the second time since 1983.

PANAMA POWER AHEAD ๐Ÿ‡ต๐Ÿ‡ฆ

A shocking end to group play saw Panama overtake European champions Portugal for the last spot in the Round of 16. Los Canaleros were historic twice over, recording their first win and booking passage to the final 16 for the first time.

UKRAINE MAKE LAST EIGHT ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ฆ

But Panama would meet their match at the hands of another history-making bunch. Ukraine cruised past their Round of 16 competition to make their first appearance in the quarter-finals.

ECUADOR KEEP CLIMBING ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡จ

Ecuador became another quarter-finals debutant by exorcising some demons in a 3-1 win over regional foes Uruguay. The first-time champions of South America are reaching new heights at Poland 2019.

Who will make history next?

The quarter-finals begin on 7 June!
