Máximo Perrone scored for the Argentina U20 team in their 2-1 loss vs. Paraguay at the Sudamericano.
Perrone scored Argentina’s only goal of the game in a match they were unlucky to lose. Two defensive errors by Javier Mascherano’s team allowed Paraguay the win.
With the score at 0-0, it was an effort on target by Paraguay’s Melgarejo from outside of the penalty area but the ball was mishandled by goalkeeper Gomes Gerth and it went in for Paraguay’s first goal of the match.
Argentina’s Santiago Castro played a great ball in from the left side which found Manchester City’s Máximo Perrone and he would score from close range. That match made it 1-1 with Argentina scoring minutes after Paraguay’s first goal.
Federico Gomes Gerth would make a big save before the end of half time to keep the score level. The second half would start and while Argentina would see much of the ball, it was Paraguay who would score off another defensive error.
Di Lollo would handle the ball inside the penalty area and it was a penalty for Paraguay. Dure would score the penalty and while Gomes Gerth guessed the right way, he was unable to make the save.
Coach Javier Mascherano would make substitutions in the second half with Brighton’s Facundo Buonanotte coming on for Real Madrid’s Nico Paz. They would send crosses into the penalty area but were unable to convert their chances.
Facundo Buonanotte was stretchered off for Argentina. He would jump for the ball and a hard landing on the pitch saw him down for a few minutes before the medical team stretchered him off the pitch.
Mascherano’s Argentina, who are in fourth place in the group, play Brazil on Monday.
