Argentine footballer sent off in England clash after video review spots foul

Elsewhere, hosts South Korea were comfortable 3-0 winners against Guinea in their first match.

The Southern Africans are housed in Group C where they will face Iran, Costa Rica and Portugal, teams they will be facing for the first time at this level.

England brings three players from Premier League champion Chelsea and five from Everton, but they are not considered a front-runner for the title. None of the South Korean goals, however, came from set pieces.

Argentina, one of the tournament favorites, was on top for lengthy periods but was unable to match the clinical finishing of the English.

South Korea takes on Argentina on Tuesday while England meets Guinea. Before the U-20 World Cup, he had bagged three goals in South Korea's last six matches, tied for most with Paik.

"Players who have made their mark on worldwide football at senior level have played in this competition before". "I think he has a great presence on the pitch". "We travelled to South Korea a week earlier to deal with the time change", Peyrovani said.

France won the European Under-19 title previous year and is expected to ease into the last 16 from a group containing Honduras, New Zealand, and Vietnam.

The VAR system being used throughout the tournament means refs and their video assistants will decide together if an incident should be looked at.

With the tournament taking place in Asia, continental hopes rest on the shoulders of Japan and host South Korea. Woodman is still young, and behind a logjam of first team goalkeepers.

Seung-woo signed for the Catalans in 2011 after impressing at the Danone Cup in South Africa aged just 13.

Saturday's opening game sees Venezuela - whose squad includes four full internationals including the 12-cap Malaga forward Adalberto Penaranda - take on Germany in a Group B encounter in Daejeon.

Seung-Woo Lee, Min-Hyuk Miam and Seung-Ho Paik were the scorers for South Korea.

Lee scored against Uruguay in a warm-up game a week before kick-off and "South Korea's Messi" is confident. "First though we have to focus on Guinea".
