The Indian U-20 national team beat Argentina U-20 by a scoreline of 2-1 in their COTIF Cup 2018 encounter in Spain, on Monday.
Floyd Pinto’s side had lost against Murcia U-20 (2-0) and Mauritania U-20 (3-0) and held Venezuela U-20 to a goalless draw in their previous engagements of the COTIF international football and will take a lot of heart in the win over the record six-time U-20 World Cup champions.
India managed to keep the 1-0 lead going into the half-time. Until the 70th minute, the score-line read 1-0 frustrating the Latin American boys, who then began to play some rough football.
