Counter-attacking seemed to be the preferred strategy of U-20 Byelarus, taking advantage of their formidable level with that tactic. After some beautiful movement down the left wing, Taisto Latva-Äijö scored for U-20 Suomi putting them ahead 1 - 0, after 36 minutes. 37 minutes into the game U-20 Byelarus managed a counterattack, but Nikita Shmulevich took a soft shot from the left flank that was easy prey for the alert keeper. 1 - 0 was the halftime score. U-20 Suomi had most of the ball, with 65 percent of possession.

With 48 minutes played, U-20 Suomi put themselves up 2 - 0 when the visiting defenders lost the ball to Ilari Vierinen, who came up from the left and proceeded to coolly round the keeper and knock the ball home. Taavi Liuha should probably have put his team up another goal after 62 minutes after breaking through the middle, but some great goalkeeping by Radislau Turczynovicz kept the visitors in the game. In a rapid move 66 minutes into the match, Rainer Pöyhönen of U-20 Suomi lost his man and passed the ball to the unmarked Saku Sinikallio who easily hit it home to make it 3 - 0. Luckily the ref didn't see him taunting the opposing fans in celebration - naughty boy! Confident in their lead, U-20 Suomi's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. A great save by keeper Radislau Turczynovicz after 67 minutes kept the visitors in the game after Yury Orlov struck from the left with a real cannonball. U-20 Suomi had most of the ball, with 65 percent of possession.

The most dominating U-20 Suomi player was without a doubt Teijo Lönn. Saku Sinikallio was a disappointment, however. U-20 Byelarus's best player was Radislau Turczynovicz. However, Zianon Haliak made a disastrous appearance. The match ends 3 - 0.
