SOLO – The Uzbekistan U-17 national team maintains its hopes of qualifying for the round of 16 after beating Canada U-17 with a landslide score of 3-0 in the second match of Group B of the 2023 U-17 World Cup at Manahan Stadium, Solo, Monday (13/11/2023 ). Uzbekistan U-17’s goals were scored through Richard Chukwu’s own suicide (22′) and Amirbek Saidov’s brace (24′ & 80′).
The Course of the First Half Game
The match was exciting because both teams played openly with each other. The show of buying and selling attacks also colored the early period of the first half.
Six minutes in, a very dangerous opportunity was launched by Uzbekistan U-17. Lazizbek Mirzaev’s right foot shot from outside the penalty box hit the crossbar.
Uzbekistan U-17’s goal finally came after repeatedly launching attacks. Richard Chukwu incorrectly anticipated the Ubekistan U-17 player’s pass into the penalty box. The ball then went smoothly into the Canada U-17 goal which was guarded by Nathaniel Abraham. Richard Chukwu’s own goal put Uzbekistan U-17 ahead 1-0 in the 22nd minute.
Two minutes later, Uzbekistan U-17 doubled their lead through Amirbek Saidov’s final finish. The goal was initially declared offside, but was later approved after a Video Assistant Referee (VAR) review.
Uzbekistan U-17 stopped attacking after winning by two goals. The score of 2-0 in favor of the team nicknamed the Young White Wolves did not change until the first half was over.
The Course of the Second Half Game
Canada continues to have difficulty endangering the Uzbekistan U-17 goal. Canada U-17’s dangerous opportunity only came in the 60th minute, when Chimere Omeze’s shot was saved by the Uzbekistan U-17 goalkeeper, Muhammadyusuf Sobirov.
