Great sensation in the World Cup U20 final players of Serbia have made against the favourites, Brazil..
In front of 25,317 spectators at the North Harbour Stadium in Auckland, Serbia have won the Under-20 World Cup against Brazil. After the goalless first half things got spiced up in second half. First Serbia over Stanisa Mandic scores an opener but the Serbian had a lead for only three minutes as Brazil hits back after a solo action of Andreas Pereira.
The match went into extra time, and when it seemed that the decision of the World Cup champion will be decided by a penalty shootout, Nemanja Maksimovic in the 118th minute from a counter-attack scores a late winner, worth a World Cup trophy. This was Serbia’s first participation at this competition. In the match for the third place, Mali with 3-1 was better than Senegal.
“I can tell you we were lucky,” Serbia coach Veljko Paunovic said. “But luck is a part of the game and you have to deserve to be lucky. At the end I believe the team that wanted to win most would win this trophy and we got it.”
