At the Under-17 World Cup, Spain’s Barcelona forward Marc Guiu scored another goal, helping his team advance to the quarter-finals of the competition. In their final group fixture, Spain defeated Japan 2-1, with Quim Junyent from Guiu’s team also finding the back of the net in the game.
Spain’s star player Quim Junyent opened the scoring for La Rojita after just eight minutes of play. Japan equalized five minutes before halftime and it was anyone’s game going into the second half. However, Junyent provided an assist to Guiu who scored the winning goal, securing Spain’s spot in the quarter-finals. Junyent was awarded man of the match for his outstanding performance on the field.
Spain will now face either Germany or America for a chance to advance to the semi-finals. If they play against Germany, Spain’s Barca contingent will come up against Noah Darvich who has been performing well for his national side at this tournament. It promises to be an exciting match and one that will determine which team advances to claim a spot in the final stages of this prestigious event.
