Argentina U20 national team starts training for U20 World Cup


The Argentina U20 national team have started training for the U20 World Cup.

Argentina will be hosting the U20 World Cup beginning on May 20 and coach Javier Mascherano already has his team training. Argentina have won the U20 World Cup six times and will look to make it seven when they kick off the tournament on May 20 against Uzbekistan.

Javier Mascherano’s team have been drawn with Uzbekistan, Guatemala and New Zealand. Mascherano was unable to count on several European based players when he announced his final team as they were not released for the tournament. Here is the squad which was named by Mascherano:

Federico Gomes Gerth (Tigre)
Nicolas Claa (Lanus)
Lucas Lavagnino (River Plate)

Agustin Giay (San Lorenzo)
Tomas Aviles (Racing)
Lautaro Di Lollo (Boca Juniors)
Valentin Gomez (Velez)
Roman Vega (FC Barcelona)
Valentin Barco (Boca Juniors)

Mateo Tanlongo (Sporting CP)
Ignacio Miramon (Gimnasia y Esgrima la Plata)
Federico Redondo (Argentinos Juniors)
Maximo Perrone (Manchester City)
Gino Infantino (Rosario Central)
Valentin Carboni (Inter)

Matias Soule (Juventus)
Luka Romero (Lazio)
Alejo Veliz (Rosario Central)
Ignacio Maestro Puch (Atletico Tucuman)
Juan Gauto (Huracan)
Brian Aguirre (Newell’s Old Boys)


  1. I just hope the team benefits from the low expectations, if they can gain confidence as the tournament goes on with fans behind them they can go far.
