Withdrawal of the right to host Indonesia… Will the U-20 World Cup be held in Argentina?
The FIFA U-20 World Cup could be held in Argentina instead of Indonesia, which was recently stripped of its hosting rights.
According to Reuters on the 31st (Korean time), Argentina made an official bid to host the U-20 World Cup. FIFA President Gianni Infantino said, “Argentina was the first to express its intention to host the event. We will decide on a new venue for the U-20 World Cup within two to three days. We all know the level of Argentine football. There is,” he greeted.
However, even if the venue is moved to Argentina, the tournament will be held between May 20th and June 11th as originally scheduled. 메이저사이트
The previous day, FIFA stripped Indonesia of the right to host the U-20 World Cup in May. The problem arose when Israel passed the European qualifiers. Indonesia, an Islamic country, has a strong hostile atmosphere towards Israel, which is in conflict with its brother Palestine.
In particular, the controversy grew as Islamic groups in Indonesia strongly opposed Israel’s participation. A rally against Israel’s participation was also held in Jakarta, the capital.
Meanwhile, the U-20 Korean national team led by coach Kim Eun-joong will also participate in this tournament.
