England gets 1st win in 20 years at U20 World Cup

The use of video assistant referees (VARs) at the upcoming Federation Internationale de Football Association competitions moved a step closer, with Federation Internationale de Football Association confirming the appointment of Hawk-Eye Innovations as the VAR technology provider for the tournaments mentioned.

South Korea and Guinea will have their opening match at Jeonju World Cup Stadium at 8 p.m. on Saturday, after England and Argentina go head-to-head at the same venue.

Iran's progression to the final four was largely the result of a miserly defence which conceded only once in the first four matches of the tournament, but it was the way they exited the competition which lives in the memory, as they lost 6-5 in an epic semi-final against Saudi Arabia.

Host South Korea and Guinea complete Group A.

Argentina went down to 10 men in the second half of the Group A match after a video review system was used for only the second time in a Federation Internationale de Football Association tournament, following the 2016 Club World Cup, when Lautaro Martínez was sent off for an apparent elbow on Fikayo Tomori. We have watched a number of their games and we had the great experience of coming over previous year to play against them, so we will be prepared. "We know they are very organized and have very good individual players".

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

At least 11 technology firms were in trials with Federation Internationale de Football Association past year, though the decision announced Friday appears to favor Hawk-Eye for the 2018 World Cup if a contract is awarded.

Comey agrees to testify before Senate intelligence committee
The White House has struggled to explain the chain of events that led to Mr Comey's firing and exactly who made the decision. Now, he'll have the opportunity to talk not just about Russian Federation investigation, but why Trump fired him.

If a match is all square after 90 minutes, both sides will get to use a fourth substitution and, if two hours of football can not separate them, penalties will be taken in a new order.

Some of the world's top young footballing talent will be on display, with more than 500 players in 24 teams taking part, but the bookmakers are split on who to make favourites.

Takefusa Kubo spent four years playing for Barcelona's youth team before signing for FC Tokyo in 2016.

Japan's group, with Italy, Uruguay and South Africa is tough. South Korea's looks far from easy, too, with an opening game against Guinea followed by Argentina and England.

His main weapon is the "Korean Messi", Lee Seung-Woo, who plays for Barcelona and is revered for his ball skills.

The final is scheduled to take place at the Suwon World Cup Stadium on June 11.

In a press conference Friday, FIFA's Head of Refereeing Massimo Busacca said he doesn't want the VAR system to be used in every play of the game.
