Zbigniew Boniek, President of the Polish Football Association, is extremely happy with how the FIFA U-20 World Cup has gone and has enjoyed what he has seen both in the stands and on the pitch. In terms of the final, the Polish football great considers Ukraine to be slight favourites, but also points out the qualities that have enabled Korea Republic to get so far. Zibi also predicts tears after the final but says “sporting tears are never all bad”.
“Football can only grow in importance if the national teams play. After every scored goal and every good result here at Poland 2019, you can see how much it means to the players and how much they identify with their national flag.”
