Israel has reached the quarterfinals of the Federation Internationale de Football Association (FIFA) Under-20 World Cup with a stunning upset.
The Israelis defeated heavy favorites Brazil 3-2 in extra time in the quarterfinals of the 2023 FIFA U-20 World Cup in San Juan, Argentina, on Thursday.
Israel and Brazil were tied 1-1 after 90 minutes. Then came extra time. In the first minute of extra time, Brazil conceded a goal to take the lead. However, the Israelis bounced back. Hamza Sibli equalized in the third minute of the first half, and Dor Tugman’s left-footed shot rattled the net in the first minute of extra time.
Israel, who barely qualified for the tournament as the second-place team in Group C with one win and one draw in the group stage, showed their class by knocking out Brazil. Making their first appearance at the U-20 World Cup, Israel will play the winner of the USA-Uruguay match for a spot in the final.메이저놀이터
