The final group matches of the South American Youth Championship take place in Montevideo on Saturday, with Argentina in control of the destiny of the title. Sergio Romero says Argentina can take positives from its Copa America opener, despite dropping points from a winning position, as it prepares for this week’s Group B clash against Uruguay.
Uruguay was also unconvincing in its opener – a 1-0 win over Jamaica – but Romero says both sides will take positives from their first Copa outings.
Uruguay’s most skilled forward, Luis Suarez, is not playing in this tournament because of the biting incident at the 2014 FIFA World Cup in Brazil. Regardless, Uruguay has jumped out to an early lead after defeating Jamaica in their first game.
Messi: This left-footed living football legend is always a nightmare of opponent teams’ defenders and goalkeepers. After a bad ending in World Cup 2014, now he has become even more lethal player in Copa America 2015.
Argentina vs. Uruguay
