The Argentine Under 17 Team achieved its first joy in the World Cup of the category being played in Indonesia and settled into their group after the debut defeat. It was 3 to 1 this Tuesday over Japan with goals from Diablito Echeverri -great goal-, Valentino Acuña and Agustín Ruberto.
With this result, Argentina was second in Group D with the same amount of points as Japan (3) but better goal difference (+1 versus -1). At the top is Senegal (6), who defeated 4 to 1 Poland (0), the next and last Argentine rival in the group stage. The match against the Europeans will be played this Friday from 6 (television on Public TV, TyC Sports and DSports) and it is worth remembering that the first two in each group and the four best third parties from the six zones advance to the round of 16.
Against Japan, Those led by Diego Placente arrived urgently for a good result and left with a very different determination of the debut (2-1 defeat with Senegal), cornering the Japanese against their area. Not by chance, before 10 minutes into the game, things were already 2-0 for Argentina.
Diablito Echeverri hit first, perhaps the best-known player on the team and with the most experience in the First Division (four games in River). Number 10 and captain He had a free kick from quite a distance and put it in the corner at 4 minutes.
And after a while, at 8, the second arrived: very good overflow and center behind Santiago López (Independent) and definition within the steering wheel area Valentino Acuña (Newell’s).
Argentina did not stop its attacks once it had gained the advantage and flirted with a victory several times, especially thanks to the leadership of Echeverri and the very pleasant appearance of Dylan Gorosito on the right side (Boca), constant passing option and who was a substitute against Senegal. Gorosito was one of Placente’s three changes compared to his debut elevenalong with goalkeeper Jeremías Florentín (Talleres) and midfielder Maher Carrizo (Talleres).
But the albiceleste dominance was a matter of the first 45. The thing is that the Asians came out of halftime with another ambition that, added to the logical Argentine silence, led to Japan owning the ball and Argentina betting on the counterattack. With those letters, The discount didn’t take long to arrive: at 50overflow on the right by Shotaro Shibata (Kawasaki Frontale) and scoring entry by Rento Takoaka (Nissho Gakuen), who took advantage of a distraction by Gorosito on the mark.
What followed for Argentina He had a lot of torture, enduring Shibata’s combinations, devilish when it came to overflowing, and number 10 Ryunosuke Sato (FC Tokyo). Even so, the National Team had a good opportunity on the right of Echeverri, after an excellent action by the central midfielder Mariano Gerez (Lanús)but deactivated in a great way by goalkeeper Wataru Goto (FC Tokyo).
Pleasant I seek to give air to theirs with some modifications, such as the entry of the very interesting Franco Mastantuono (River), a 16-year-old offensive midfielder. The left-hander had already had a good tackle against Senegal, contributing to the national comeback attempt.
The biggest Argentine scare occurred at the end when Japan ended up celebrating after a stopped ball, butThe referee correctly annulled the goal due to a charge against Florentín.
The closing became truly endless, also stretched by the 10 minutes of stoppage time. But on the eighth, peace came. Mastantuono managed the times, he played with Gorosito and he played with the scorer Agustín Ruberto (River)who hit it from outside the area and was favored by a deflection: 3-1 and into the bag.
