The Under 20 World Cup in Argentina begins this Saturday with four games, including the debut of the National Team led by Javier Mascherano. Below is the complete fixture with the schedules of all the matches and their venues.

La Albiceleste went from being left out of the tournament after being eliminated in the South American tournament to becoming the host of the competition and one of the candidates for the seventh title for the country.

The national team will debut in the 23rd. edition of the World Cup next Saturday at 6:00 p.m. at the Madre de Ciudades stadium in Santiago del Estero against Uzbekistan, the last Asian champion, and will launch the illusion of winning the trophy as happened in 2001, the last time Argentina was host.

Sub 20 World Cup: the illusion of the National Team

In little more than three months, the youth team went from accepting “failure”, as Mascherano defined it, for being left out in the first round of the South American tournament played in Colombia (it finished seventh out of ten teams) to staying for the place for the venue and be one of the candidates for the title.

In the middle of that period, Mascherano submitted his resignation from office, FIFA lowered Indonesia as the venue for the World Cup, Argentina applied to organize the tournament in record time and Lionel Scaloni had a “crucial” role in convincing the coach to resign. take charge of the team again.

Although it is a tournament organized by FIFA since 1977, the clubs are not obliged to give up their players and Mascherano suffered from the loss of three important figures: Alejandro Garnacho, from Manchester United; Facundo Buonanotte, from Brighton; and Nicolás Paz, from Real Madrid.

Buonanotte participated in the South American but was injured in the first game against Paraguay and quickly returned to England, while Paz, son of Pablo -former defender of the team in France 1998- was one of the few high points of the team eliminated in the first phase after three losses and a win.

Sub 20 World Cup in Argentina: Mascherano’s list

The former midfielder and World Cup benchmark in 2010, 2014 and 2018 finally made up the list of 21 footballers with nine members of the squad that was in Colombia at the end of January: goalkeeper Federico Gomes Gerth (Tigre), defenders Lautaro Di Lollo (Boca Juniors) , Agustín Giay (San Lorenzo) and Valentín Gómez (Vélez Sarsfield), midfielders Máximo Perrone (Manchester City) and Gino Infantino (Rosario Central) and forwards Ignacio Maestro Puch (Atlético Tucumán), Alejo Véliz (Rosario Central) and Brian Aguirre (Newell’s Old Boys).

Despite the rotation of names, the only players who had not been part of the Mascherano cycle that started in January 2022 instead of Fernando “Bocha” Batis are the defender of Racing Club Tomás Aviles, who curiously played the South American with the selected from Chile, and goalkeepers Nicolás Cláa, from Lanús, and Lucas Lavagnino, from River Plate.

Sub 20 World Cup: Argentina and another friendly victory

The Argentine Under 20 national team defeated their Japanese counterpart 2-1 on Monday in the second friendly in preparation for the World Cup in the category that will begin next Saturday and that took place at the AFA premises, in Ezeiza.

The midfielder of Juventus, from Italy, who was only able to join the team led by Javier Mascherano at the weekend, Matías Soulé, and the left-back of Boca Juniors, Valentín Barco, were the authors of the Argentine goals.

The start of the game was at full steam, because Argentina started winning with Soulé’s goal, but the Japanese equalized immediately and everything then became very balanced and back and forth.

But the best of the afternoon was reserved for the second half, when “Colorado” Barco “did his thing” and after a stack that left three rivals on the way, he finished off against the right post of the Japanese goalkeeper to seal the adjusted Argentine victory.

Japan was a rival that helped the Argentine team to measure where it stands in this World Cup, while the previous one, the Dominican Republic, which it beat 4-0, was only useful to evaluate the second rival of the Albiceleste team in the knockout phase. groups, Guatemala, since they competed against each other in the CONCACAF Qualifiers and ended up defining hand in hand the pass to the final against the United States, which also meant qualifying for the Olympic Games in Paris.

Mascherano, as he did against the Central Americans, made the eight possible substitutions at halftime and this time the one who came on for goalkeeper Federico Gomes Gerth was Lucas Lavagnino from River Plate, when the other day it had been Lanús’s goalkeeper, Nicolás Cláa.
