France vs. Uruguay, 2013 FIFA Under-20 World Cup: Preview and TV schedule

Jasper Juinen

France take on Uruguay as two initially-unfancied teams bid to be crowned Under-20 World Champions.

France will take on Uruguay in a match between two relative underdogs for the Under-20 World Cup.

Neither side were fancied as the tournament began, with both getting off to fairly inconsistent starts, but both grew into the tournament as things progressed and other favourites such as Portugal and Spain fell by the wayside. France are probably the most-fancied side of the two to come home with the trophy, with their formidable midfield of Paul Pogba and Geoffrey Kondogbia backed up by the goalscoring exploits of new Arsenal recruit Yaya Sanogo.

France, however, haven't had too difficult a draw so far, Ghana the hardest team they've faced so far - in contrast, Uruguay had to deal with Spain to progress to where they are now, showing their determination with an extra-time victory over the Spaniards, as well as a late victory over Nigeria and prevailing over Iraq on penalties. With plenty of talent on show for both sides, this should be an enticing affair.

Match Date/Time: Saturday, 13th June, 7 p.m. UTC, 2 p.m. ET

Venue: Ali Sami Yen Arena, Istanbul, Turkey

TV: ESPN (U.S.), Univision Deportes (U.S. Spanish), Eurosport 1 (U.K.)
