Javier Mascherano’s Argentina U20 team have won the COTIF tournament.
Mascherano has won his first trophy as a coach. After having finished fifth in the Toulon tournament in June, Mascherano has won the COTIF tournament following a 4-0 win vs. Uruguay in the final.
The Argentine became coach of the U20 national team in January and in his second tournament, has a winning team. Goals by Agustín Giay, Ignacio Maestro Puch, Brian Aguirre and Lautaro Ovando in the final gave Argentina the 4-0 win.
It was the following XI in the final:

Lautaro Di Lollo
Ignacio Maestro Puch
With 12 minutes remaining and Argentina leading 2-0, Uruguay were awarded a penalty kick. The 18 year old Argentine goalkeeper of Tigres, Federico Gomes Gerth, made the save as he jumped to his bottom left and kept Argentina 2-0 up. Here were Argentina’s matches in the tournament:
Argentina 0 – 0 Rukh Ukraine, group match
Argentina 2 – 0 Valencia, group match
Argentina 1 – 0 UD Alzira. group match
Argentina 2 – 0 Levante UD, semi final
Argentina 2 – 0 Uruguay, final
The entire match can be watched on the AFA Youtube channel.
Great news! 👌👌 A big congrats to him!!
Hope to get another great coach..
Congratulations to Mascherano and co.
There was some skepticism about Mascherano recently. He won his first trophy now. Incidentally, Scaloni’s first trophy was also COTIF.
Haters gonna hate.
Ignacio Puch (Atletico Tucuman) 2 goals, Lautaro Ovando 2 goals and Brian Aguirre 2 goals.
I watched the full match of the semi and will watch the final later.
Football was mediocre but let’s keep in mind they play on synthetic smaller pitches.
Nico Paz (Real Madrid) has something about him, I like his play even though his performances were decent.
Ignacio Puch looks good too.
RB Agustin Giay looks good too.
Goal keeper Gerth also looks decent.
If u add the likes of Garnacho, Soule, Perrone of Velez and Veliz of Central then you have a good set of players to work with.
After a dismal performance from the defenders of the Toulon, finally they finished the tournament looking good defensively. Cotif level of strength is lower than Toulon who used older players in general, but still a good achievement. It will be a good boost for next year WC u20.
Who scored most goal for us in the tournament?
Congratulations. Boca left back Valentino Barco player of the Tournament…
Congratulation, Argentina…. Well done…..
God bless you all…
Congratulations El Jefecito !!! So proud of you
I am following several promising players ,they are
Jose Lopez (palmeiras)
Brian Aguirre (Newells)
Facundo Farias (Colon)
Matias Godoy (Talleres)
Bullaude (Godoy cruz)
Castellano is the most impressive player recently. I think he may be better than Alvarez (manchester city).
You cant speak seriously.
