Adolfo GAICH scores twice as Argentina U20s beat Murcia at COTIF


Adolfo GAICH was the hero for the Argentina U20 team in their 2-0 win against Murcia at the COTIF tournament.

Lionel SCALONI’s boys are 2-0 at the tournament and after having picked up a resounding 4-0 win against Venezuela in their opening match, GAICH scored a brace in against Murcia.

The opening goal came in the 23rd minute after Alvaro BARREAL sent in a cross into the penalty area and GAICH got his first goal of the night through a powerful header. Shortly after, the two connected once more as BARREAL played a short pass into the area and all GAICH had to do was tap it into the net.

Argentina top Group A as they play second place Mauritania on Friday and last place in the group India on Sunday. Group B has Russia, Uruguay, Morocco, Qatar and Valencia.


  1. How tall is Ezequiel Palacios from River? A lot of sources write 170cm (eikipedia, transfermarkt, soccerway), but seems a taller guy, 180cm at least.

  2. No.21, Alvaro Barreal (Velez Sarsfield), has part on every goal scored by Argentina during his presence on the pitch (4). Colidio penalty goal after foul on Barreal.He scored the second against Venezuela while yesterday had 2 assists. As far best player of Argentina in this tournament.
