It’s the end of the road for the Argentina team at the U20 FIFA World Cup after losing on penalty kicks.
In a match where they took the lead twice, Fernando BATISTA’s team lost their concentration and ultimately got eliminated from the World Cup. Argentina took a 1-0 lead through their main target man Adolfo GAICH who took advantage of a loose ball in the penalty area.
Argentina would go on to let in a goal following a Mali corner kick. GAICH would nearly restore his team’s lead but his header went to the wrong side of the post. Goalkeeper ROFFO was forced into a great save to keep it level.
The match would require extra time. Ezequiel BARCO would restore Argentina’s lead but Mali would go on to equalize through a quick free kick which was played short.
Penalty kicks were needed and everyone score their penalty except for Tomas CHANCALAY who would miss his as Mali would go on to win.
