Argentina U20 to play in COTIF L’Alcúdia tournament, groups, matches


The Argentina U20 team will play in the COTIF L’Alcúdia tournament with groups and matches announced.

Javier Mascherano’s Argentina U20 team will once more take part in a tournament this year. The team finished fifth at the Toulon tournament last month.

Mascherano will try to emulate current Argentina national team coach Lionel Scaloni’s accomplishments back in the 2018 edition. Scaloni, who managed the Argentina U20 team back in 2018, won the tournament.

Alejandro Garnacho was named as the revelation of the tournament in Toulon as it remains to be seen if Mascherano will call the Manchester United player to the team. At the last tournament in 2019, the team finished in third place.

All the matches in the tournament are two halves of 40 minutes each. Here are the groups and matches:

Group A:
Valencia CF
FC Rukh Ukraine
AD Alzira

Group B:
Villarreal CF
UB Brasil
Levante UD

Here are Argentina’s matches in the group:

Saturday, July 30: FC Rukh Ukraine vs. Argentina
Monday, August 1: Argentina vs. Valencia CF
Thursday, August 4: Argentina vs. UD Alzira

Friday, August 5:
The semi finals

Sunday, August 7:

  1. I doubt if the top names like Garnacho, Soule, or Luka will join this tournament as they all already are parts of their clubs in pre season. Soule and Luka maybe as they are not yet promoted to the first team yet but not Garnacho. But anyway I will be very interested in the tournament with or without them.

  2. alvarez and enzo this two well gelled under their team very quickly. enzo played defensive position and i think no coach in this world will play him in deeper position it is just initial phase i’m sure coach will very soon let him play in up. enzo is good but not exequsite, he is still young he needs turn his allround performance into exequsite and become top player in midfield.

  3. Except missing one chance excellent debut from Julien Alvarez .He is good in possession, created good chances for City and perfect pep guardiala player…

  4. I am, he almost had a chance to score if he didn’t slip. But so far so good considering it’s his first game. Pep going to love him for his nonstop running.
