How did Qatar and Nigeria qualify for the FIFA U-20 World Cup?
Qatar booked its ticket to make a fourth appearance at the U20 World Cup by reaching the semi-final of the 2018 AFC U19 Championship. At the tournament which took place between October and November last year in Indonesia, the young Maroons were denied the opportunity for a final berth as a result of a 3-1 defeat to South Korea.
The latter subsequently lost to Saudi Arabia in the final but secured a spot at Poland 2019 as contingents from Asia alongside the winners, Japan and Qatar.
Relatively, Nigeria earned a spot at this summer's tournament as a result of its fourth-place finish at the Africa U20 Cup of Nations which was held in Niger earlier this year. The Flying Eagles, who will be making their 12th appearance at the intercontinental tournament, were defeated by eventual winners Mali via penalty shootouts at the semi final stage.
What is the form of Qatar U-20 in contrast to Nigeria U-20's?
The aftermath of a somewhat commendable campaign at the 2018 AFC U19 Championship has been far from rosy for Qatar. In retrospect, the Maroons enter the U-20 World Cup with four defeats in its last five matches. The last three games have all ended in defeats for the Asian side.
Meanwhile, bar the successive defeats in its last two games at the Africa U-20 championship, Nigeria has won four and drawn one in its last five matches. The Flying Eagles have registered six wins, a draw and three defeats in their last 10 games.
What is the head-to-head of Qatar U-20 vs Nigeria U-20?
The upcoming Group D clash between Qatar and Nigeria will be the first of its kind at the U-20 level.
