After a positive first stage, with two wins and one defeat, Angola are looking to reach the quarter-finals against an opponent at all levels unknown to coach Pedro Gonçalves and his boys.

Meanwhile, the squad’s 0-2 defeat by the host team (Brazil) in the closing of the group stage has already been “digested”, so the national team should double efforts on the pitch as the Koreans have also been making a good championship.

Angolans and South Koreans occupied, respectively, the second position of their groups (A and C) with six points and are meeting each other for the first time. The winning squad will face in the quarter-finals the winner of the Japan-Mexico match, set to happen on Wednesday, Nov 06.

The other round of 16 matches, in which Africa is represented by three teams, are Nigeria-Netherlands, Senegal-Spain, Brazil-Chile, France-Australia, Italy-Ecuador and Argentina-Paraguay.

England, absent from this edition, are the holders of the trophy.
