It wasn’t easy but Argentina managed a 2-1 win against Algeria.
A match involving two red cards, several saves by RULLI and guilt edge chances missed by Jonathan CALLERI were all part of Julio OLARTICOECHEA”s plan… Alright, maybe it wasn’t. However, Argentina remain alive in the tournament.
Victor CUESTA picked up a second yellow card and was sent off in first half injury time. But it was Angel CORREA who gave 10 men Argentina the lead in the 48th minute. Algeria equalised shortly after but it was Jonathan CALLERI who scored the game winning goal to give his team the important win.
In between it all was a massive Jonathan CALLERI miss and a Cristian PAVON shot that hit the post (which he should have passed to SIMEONE for a tap in).
