You have no choice: win and think about the last date

The U20 National Team is playing all or nothing today against Peru / Fotobaires

The Argentine sub 20 team will face Peru today from 7:00 p.m., already eliminated, with the obligation to win to continue with the chances of qualifying for the Hexagonal of the South American tournament in Colombia. The match will be played at the Pascual Guerrero stadium in Cali.

Javier Mascherano’s team no longer has a margin for error and neither does it depend on itself to advance to the final Hexagonal of the tournament that qualifies for the World Cup in Indonesia and the Pan American Games in Santiago. The defeats against Paraguay (2-1) in the debut and in the classic against Brazil (3-1) left the youth team in a compromised situation.

The team has to beat Peru, who lost all three games and was eliminated, and hope that Brazil, already classified, does not lose to Colombia. In this case, the Albiceleste would play a direct duel against Colombia the day after tomorrow for the third place.

The other point to take into account is that if Federico Gomes Gerth, Máximo Perrone, Lautaro Di Lollo, Alejo Veliz and Valentín Gómez are booked again, they will miss the match against the locals for the last date.

In addition to this, Mascherano suffered two important casualties due to injury, first with Facundo Buonanotte after a hard blow against Paraguay and then with Agustín Giay, who was replaced against Brazil with a sprained ankle.

The Argentine national team is the maximum historical winner of the Under 20 World Cups with six trophies. However, since the last conquest in Canada 2007, it has already been left out of two editions: Egypt 2009 and Turkey 2013.
