Argentina manage late equalizer against Brazil

Argentina managed to pick up a last second equalizer against Brazil in the South American U20 championship, leaving them still with a small chance of making the World Cup.

Argentina’s chances of qualifying for the U20 World Cup were dead and gone until Lautaro MARTINEZ’s 95th minute equalizer plugged the wire back in and leaves Argentina on life support. A 2-2 draw against Brazil ahead of Saturday’s last match against Venezuela means the Albiceleste are on the brink of missing out on the U20 World Cup, save for a miracle.

Deep (5 minutes deep) into injury time saw MARTINEZ head the ball into the back of the net from close range. While the kids can still qualify for the tournament they have won 5 times, qualification is no longer in their hands. The team play Venezuela on Saturday (who can actually win the tournament if they pick up a win and other results go their way). Here are the current standings:
