The U20 Argie-Girls hold China to goal-less draw

The FIFA U20 Women's World Cup Chile 2008 started off today with a 0-0 draw between Argentina and China.

Our girls were the clear underdogs in this Group B match which happened to open the tournament in the Nelson Oyarzún Stadium in Chillan, Chile.

The Albicelesterettes (if you allow me to nickname them) were drawn in a very difficult group which includes France and the USA, two teams that will face each other next in the same city.

Argentina presented the following lineup, which included a few players from the Olympic squad:

The next game for our girls will be against USA on Saturday, 22 November, before they take on France on Wednesday, 26 November in their last Group B encounter.

A good result to start the campaign. Now the girls will be looking to nick something out of the USA (very very difficult task) and then play all their chances to advance to the next round against France.
