Colombia Beats Host Poland As U20 World Cup Kicks Off



It was a festive atmosphere for the 17,463 fans on hand to see hosts Poland kick off their FIFA U-20 World Cup campaign against Colombia, but Los Cafeteros brought their own energy and came away with a 2-0 victory at Lodz Stadium.

Forward Ivan Angulo opened the scoring in the 23rd minute, capitalising on an errant pass from Sebastian Walukiewicz. The Colombian No7 was tireless, making runs between defenders before being subbed off. Colombia would add a second goal late on, this time with substitute Luis Sandoval doing the damage.

Both teams will play again on Sunday: Poland square off against a Tahiti side also looking for their first win, while Colombia take on Senegal at the top of Group A.
