FIFA Under-20 World Cup: Preview and TV schedule for Wednesday's semifinals

Richard Wolowicz

Iraq take on Uruguay while France face Ghana as the Under-20 World Cup enters the semi-final stage.

France vs. Ghana

France are perhaps the favourites of the tournament following Spain's exit, but they have a trickier test to make the final than their most dangerous opponents Uruguay, being drawn against a tough Ghana team. With their opponents having put Portugal to the sword, there will be plenty of warning for the French.

Match Date/Time: 4 p.m. UTC, 11 a.m. ET

Venue: Ataturk Stadium, Bursa, Turkey

TV: ESPNU (U.S. - English), Univision Deportes (U.S. - Spanish), Eurosport 2 (U.K.), Eurosport 2 International

Iraq vs. Uruguay

After Uruguay put Spain out in the quarter-finals, they will be hotly-tipped to go all the way having knocked out the favourites. The prospect of Iraq may not sound too daunting, and they'll certainly be devastated should they fail to make the finals. For Iraq, however, the chance to continue their run will provide plenty of motivation.

Match Date/Time: 7 p.m. UTC, 2 p.m. ET

Venue: Huseyin Avni Aker Stadium, Trabzon, Turkey

TV: ESPNU (U.S. - English), Univision Deportes (U.S. - Spanish), Eurosport 2 (U.K.), Eurosport 2 International
