Santiago López scored twice for the Argentina U17 team in their 2-1 win vs. Venezuela at the Sudamericano.
López was the star of the match for Diego Placente’s Argentina U17 team as he scored both goals in the match. A ball out wide by Gorosito into the penalty area found López who scored to give Argentina the 1-0 lead.
Venezuela would draw level off a set piece. A free kick into the penalty area was not properly defender by the Argentina U17 team and Venezuela would get their goal.
Argentina would retake the lead. An effort from outside of the penalty area by Subiabre was saved by the goalkeeper with Albarracin’s effort off the rebound also saved but López would score Argentina’s second goal of the match.
Diego Placente’s team, along with Brazil, top the hexagonal group with Argentina first on goal difference. This was the starting eleven:
Diaz, Gorosito, Palacio, Villalba, Ontivero, ALbarracin, Gerez, Echeverri, Subiabre, Ruberto, López
They play Paraguay on Monday.
