Tournament season officially kicks off Thursday, with the opening four matches of the FIFA U20 World Cup in Poland.

A European team has won the last three titles at this level, and the odds to win show that three teams form the continent are the top three picks to win this year’s edition: France (+375), Portugal (+650), and hosts Poland (+700).

Of the three, only Poland takes the field today, in the late contest in Group A against a tough Colombia side.

There are two matches in Group B as well, with Mexico in action against Italy in what should be the math of the day.

In Norway, the NM Cup will continue with three matches, and three heavy favorites once again.
