Bet Live: FIFA U20 Semi-Finals

France v. Ghana at 4pm UK time, followed by Iraq v. Uruguay at 715pm

FIFA's Under-20 football semi-finals kick off in Turkey today, featuring three well-known football countries and one big surprise. In Bursa, European power France faces African giant Ghana, while in Trabzon the same evening, two-time World Cup champ Uruguay faces - wait for it - Iraq.

France defeated Ghana 3-1 in the group stage, but both could be considered lucky to be here when one considers that they finished second and third respectively behind unbeaten pre-tournament favorites Spain. However, their form line in the knockout stages is good, with France defeating Turkey and Uzbekistan, and Ghana beating Portugal and Chile.

Uruguay will be confident heading into their game against Iraq, after knocking off Spain 1-0 in the quarter-finals following an impressive 2-1 win over Nigeria. Iraq topped their group against England, Chile and Egypt, and were lucky to progress in extra time and penalties against Paraguay and South Korea.

William Hill Sports offers the following title odds heading into this evening's matches: France, 5/6, Uruguay, 11/4, Ghana, 11/2, Iraq, 8/1.
