VIDEO HIGHLIGHTS: Sudamericano U20 – Argentina 3-2 Colombia. Favourites Argentina Crash Out Tournament As Hosts

Argentina’s dream of qualification to the next stage of the competition faded as Paraguay’s win earlier in the day eliminated them from the South American Youth Championship.

The Argentinians were one of the favourites coming into the tournament being the hosts and boasting a range of European-based young talent in their squad.

A penalty from Alan Ruiz gave them an ideal start in their bid to avoid finishing bottom of the table.

FC Porto’s Juan Iturbe added to the lead before Brayan Perea grabbed one back for the Colombians, who had already qualified.

Augustin Allione extended Argentina’s lead which made Juan Quintero’s 74th minute effort insignificant.
