Dublin and Cork have both shown their hand ahead of the All-Ireland U20 Football Final which throws in at 4 pm on Saturday in O’Moore Park, Portlaoise. 

Both sets of management teams have decided to stick with the same starting 15 that helped them over the line in their respective semi-final match-ups last week.

Cork defeated Tyrone in a gripping contest by 2-17 to 1-18 while Dublin qualified for the final while Dublin came away with a 2-14 to 1-10 victory over Paraic Joyce’s Galway outfit.

Dublin are slight favourites heading into the game and much of it is to do with the form of full-forward, Ciarán Archer. The St. Maurs man has bagged an impressive 9-30 in just four games and if Cork are to stand any chance of winning they must curtail the influence of Dublin’s latest star.

The game will be televised live on TG4.
