Argentina lost 2-1 to Ecuador in their first match of the second round at the Sudamericano.
For the second time in the tournament, Argentina were unable to defeat Ecuador. Fernando BATISTA’s boys took a 1-0 lead through Thiago ALMADA’s deflected free kick. However, the lead didn’t last too long as just 11 minutes later, CAMPANA drew Ecuador level.
ALMADA’s free kick wasn’t the only one of the match as CHARCOPA scored one of his own in the second half. Fausto VERA of Argentina would get himself sent off just minutes after that.
The next match for Argentina is on Friday against Colombia.
