ST LOUIS (LALATE) – Italy vs. Uruguay 2013 (en vivo live score results below) prompts a U17 Copa Mundial soccer battle this morning October 23, 2013. The soccer game represents the final group game match for both nations in the Group B stage of the FIFA World Cup Under 17 tournament.
Today’s Italia vs. Uruguay 2013 game (start time 6 am PST) is critical for only one country: Uruguay. Italy has already qualified to the next round as the result of two wins. Those two wins have given Italia six points, a first place Group B rank, and automatic qualification to the next round.
Uruguay’s future is still not determined. It is currently ranked in second place with four points ahead of Ivory Coast with one point. But if Uruguay looses today and Ivory Coast wins, then Uruguay might have trouble.
Uruguay’s important factor, however, is its eight goals in two games. If the team ends up tied to Ivory Coast on points, Uruguay would likely advance because it has eight goals currently compared to Ivory Coast’s two goals.
Italy won their opener against Ivory Coast, final score 0-1. Then they came back and beat New Zealand, final score 1-0. Uruguay in turn drawed against Ivory Coast 1-1 but beat New Zealand with a 7-0 final score.
Italy’s first game in the knockouts age, Round of 16, will be on October 28 or October 29. The game’s time, competitor, and match schedule have yet to be confirmed as of this morning. For live score results today click HERE.
