Guinea will face Costa Rica in their second match at the 2017 FIFA Under-17 World Cup on Tuesday.

Kick-off is at 13h30 CAT.

The Group C encounter is scheduled to take place at the Fatorda Stadium in the Indian city of Margao.

The Junior Elephants are coming off a disappointing 3-1 defeat to Iran in their opening match which was played in Margao on Saturday.

The defeat left Guinea placed fourth on Group C standings without a single point. They are three points behind the leaders Iran with two games left.

The 2017 U17 Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) third-place finishers will look to Fandje Toure. The forward netted Guinea's consolation goal against Iran.

Meanwhile, Costa Rica were defeated 2-1 by Germany in their first group match which was played in Margao on Saturday.

As a result, the Junior Selection are placed third on the Group C table without a point. They are ahead of fourth-placed Guinea on goal-difference.

Andres Gomez scored Costa Rica's only goal against Germany and he will look to inspire the 2017 U17 CONCACAF Championship fourth-place finishers to victory over Guinea.

Referee Bobby Madden, who is from Scotland, will officiate the encounter between Guinea and Costa Rica.
