Javier Mascherano’s Argentina U20 team won 2-0 vs. Uzbekistan.
The Argentina U20 team took a 1-0 lead off a free kick. A cross by Axel Encinas into the penalty area found Tomás Kummer who scored with a header.
A foul onto Ovando meant a red card for Uzbekistan. Argentina also played against Brazil with a man advantage in the first game after they had a player that was red carded.
Argentina scored their second goal and once more off a cross into the penalty area. The cross would somehow find Maestro Puch and he would score to give Argentina the 2-0 lead.
This was the starting eleven:
Federico Gomes Gerth
Lautaro Di Lollo
Axel Encinas had this to say after the game:
“Both teams played well. We have been preparing and we are always at our best. With this shirt, you always have to give everything and take advantage of the opportunity.”
The team play Uruguay on September 10.
