[UNDER-20 WORLD CUP] Italy upset Spain, the only team to win all three games during the group phase, when the Azzurrini prevailed, 3-1, Monday in the round of 16 at the Under-20 World Cup. South Korea also advanced, beating Paraguay by the same 3-0 scoreline that it had beaten the USA on Friday. For more on Monday's games and the complete schedule with viewing information ...

A pair of Serie B players were the stars for Italy. Mattia Mustacchio of Crotone had the first and third goals, while Andrea Mazzarani of Ancona had a goal and an assist.

Spain played the last 62 minutes with 10 players after Barcelona product Alberto Botio, on loan this season to Sporting Gijon, was sent off.

Dispelling the notion that you need a team of seasoned pros to win at the Under-20 World Cup, South Korea won with five college players in the starting lineup.

Kim Min-Woo
of Yonsei University scored twice, and Kim Bo-Kyung of Hongik University added the third.
