U17: Argentina only managed to draw against Colombia


After an impressive start of the U17 South American tournament in Ecuador, Argentina had to settle with only one point after they drew 0-0 against Colombia.

There were no signs of that scoring machine that tore apart Paraguay only two days ago in our debut. But the team is pretty much on course for the second round as the best three teams from the group of five, will advance to the final round.

One shocking piece of bad news is the injury to the best player of our team, striker Federico LAURITO who plays for Udinese (Italy). During the match against Paraguay, he broke the ligaments of his right knee and will of course miss out on the rest of the tournament. HereĀ“s wishing for a speedy recovery for him.

The next match will be against Venezuela on March 11th before ending the first round participation with the Rio de la Plata derby against Uruguay (March 13th).
