Kiwis, Flying Eagles dazzle on engrossing day

THE DAY REPLAYED – The second day of the FIFA U-20 World Cup Poland 2019 produced two big wins and two narrow ones, with New Zealand setting a personal record thanks to their 5-0 triumph over Honduras. Elsewhere, Nigeria ended their lengthy winless run in opening games.

The fixtures between Uruguay and Norway and Ukraine and USA were much closer affairs, remaining tense until the final whistle. Uruguay raced into a 2-0 lead within the opening 30 minutes and looked to be on course for all three points, but Norway pulled a goal back early in the second half to throw the game wide open again, before the South Americans put it to bed. Meanwhile, USA managed to level the score after falling behind against Ukraine, but the Stars and Stripes ultimately finished empty-handed.
