    Grouped with Argentina, England and Guinea, Korea will face Guinea for the opening match on Saturday.

    Both Guinean and Argentine players also had their training sessions, only allowing media coverage for the first 15 minutes. They will likely bump into each other frequently as all of them are staying at the same hotel in downtown Jeonju.

    "We will have 12 staff including coaches to monitor all 52 matches of the U-20 World Cup," the Korea Football Association said.
