This is how the Argentine Sub 17 National Team arrives
After the Under 17 National Team beat Poland (4-0), Diego Placente’s team not only qualified for the round of 16 of the World Cup; He did it as the first in his group. With the ticket in hand, he needed to meet a rival for the hand, something that was defined this Saturday. They will play against Venezuela, which has an Argentine coach. The table has already been defined: 16 teams are going for the crown.
By being leader of the Group Dwhere he was left with the same points as Senegal y Japanbut with a better goal difference, the National Team had, depending on the key, a better third party, which would come from zones B (Uzbekistan), E (South Korea or Burkina Faso) or F (Venezuela, Mexico or New Zealand ). On Saturday all doubts were gone…
There were two victories that determined the future of Argentina. On the one hand, the 4-0 from Mexico to New Zealand and on the other, although the same area, the 3-0 from Germany to Venezuela. Thus, El Tri reached Vinotinto in points, but surpassed them in goal difference, which is why they finished second, behind the Germans. The Venezuelans, meanwhile, were third, but classified.
As the third in groups B (Uzbekistan), C (Iran) and D (Japan) also got into the round of 16, the system determined that the first in D (Argentina) would go against the third in F (Venezuela). And so it will be.
