In the semi-finals, U23 Saudi Arabia with an effective counter-attacking style played a “final blow” in the 87th minute, making Uzbekistan “disillusioned” with the championship. The bronze medal match is also very similar to the scenario in the semi-finals.
Uzbekistan dominated and constantly had chances to score but were ineffective. D’Agostino striker in an ecstatic ball situation tore the goalkeeper Nematov, setting up a 1-0 victory for Australia.
