Argentina collect South America’s first ticket to Poland

  • Six-time U-20 World Cup champions Argentina qualify for Poland 2019
  • Brazil sit bottom with a matchday remaining
  • Five nations chasing three remaining spots

Argentina are the first South American nation to secure passage to the FIFA U-20 World Cup Poland 2019 after shoring up qualification with a match to spare on Thursday.

Argentina defeated Uruguay 2-1 with goals in each half from Anibal Moreno and Gonzalo Maroni, before Nicolas Schiappacasse pulled one back in the dying minutes.

Argentina are the best performing nation at the U-20 World Cup with six titles, most recently in 2007.

There was bad news, however, for Brazil who played out a scoreless draw against Ecuador leaving the five-time world champions with only an outside chance to qualify.

Colombia kept their hopes alive with a 2-0 win over Venezuela leaving five teams vying for the remaining three spots on Sunday’s final matchday.
