Ukraine U20 FIFA World Cup champions

The Polish city of Łódź hosted a U20 FIFA World Cup match between Ukraine and South Korea. The Ukrainian team has won with a 3:1 score and became a champion for the first time in its history. This was reported by FIFA.

Korea Republic struck quickly through Lee Kangin, who converted his penalty in the fifth minute after a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) check determined that captain Hwang Taehyeon was tripped inside the right edge of the box.

The Ukrainians poured on pressure as the first half progressed, however, culminating in Vladyslav Supriaha's 34th-minute equaliser. Korea Republic could not fully clear Serhii Buletsa's free-kick delivery into the penalty area, and Supriaha pounced on the loose ball to poke home from eight yards.

Supriaha completed his brace eight minutes into the second half. Yukhym Konoplia's deflected through ball skipped into the Ukrainian forward's path and he beat the goalkeeper one-on-one to put his side on top.

A marauding run from Heorhii Tsitaishvili in the 89th minute sealed the match and the championship for the Ukrainians. The midfielder surged forward from his own half and cracked a shot into the corner of the net.

From never progressing past the Round of 16 to lifting the trophy, Ukraine's unprecedented run to the title will be an enduring memory of Poland 2019.

UKrainian goalkeeper Andriy received the Golden Glove award.

South Korean player Lee Kangin took home the adidas Golden Ball and Erling Haland became the winner of the adidas Golden Boot.
