Argentina’s first match in preperation for the Rio 2016 Olympics ended in a 0-0 draw against Colombia.
Jonathan CALLERI scored a goal which was called off and also missed a penalty kick late in the match. Argentina play Haiti next on July 24 against Haiti.

I would like to see against weak Haiti the same line up once more (with Lucas ROmero and Espinoza for entire second half). If they won’t score a few goals then change something for fiendly against Mexico.
I think espinoza came with great energy. Seems like a great player.. lanzini correa still need to figure it out, and very impressed either the outside defenders. Very talented up top, great set of lungs. Wasn’t too impressed with lo celso
Maybe a good result. A big victory would make us a favorite. A tag we do not need now. Let the pibes play their best matches in Brazil.
Too bad Dybala and Icardi aren’t in the team.
We should have also had Kranevitter, Paredez, Vietto, J.Silva, Musacchio, F Mori, in our squad.
Musacchio, Mori? I don’t think they are better than Cuesta. Gianetti is enough talented too.
Maybe we should play without No.9
And I think Lucas ROmero played offensively and full of energy so Olarticoechea should try trio Martinez – Ascacibar – ROmero in next game wher only Ascacibar will be pure DM.
SOto was good in first half but in the second was fear to attack. I like the guy although still we have Vega to test. In River he is very offensive LB when played. It think it’s more offensive option than Soto. Of course Soto still needs a time as our team.
i hope this kid calleri, is not another palermo.
On the road to be Higuain… More seriously, i wish good luck to the players with the mess reigning in AFA currently.
@msi75: Please don’t overate this guy , it needs minimum 3 misses in a major tournament to be someone like Higuain 🙂
anyone has the link for the full match? thank you
I second that
