African Champions, Cameroon suffered their second defeat in their second group game to Argentina on Match Day 6 of the FIFA U-17 World Cup holding in Brazil. After narrowly losing to Tajikistan in their first group match, Cameroon couldn’t match the qualify of Argentines.
Matchday 6 at the FIFA U-17 World Cup Brazil 2019 offered stark contrast between its early kick-offs and late contests; the former saw proven performers outclass inexperienced sides while the latter underscored the fine margins that exist when continental kings and world football heavyweights clash.
India 2017 runners-up Spain picked up their first Brazil 2019 victory in impressive fashion, blitzing Tajikistan for four first-half goals in a match that ended 5-1 for La Rojita.
Group E’s second tie of the day pitted South American holders Argentina against Africa champions Cameroon, and the
Albiceleste attack sprung to life in the second half to produce a 3-1 comeback win.
Solomon Islands will have to wait at least one more match for their first-ever U-17 World Cup goal. The Oceania representatives in Group F were overrun 7-0 by a Paraguay side keen to alleviate some frustration from the scoreless draw against Mexico in their opening match.
Mexico and Italy traded quality goal scoring chances all night, but it took a scorching individual run and strike from Degnand Gnonto in 74th minute to break the match open. El Tri and
Gli Azzurrini then traded stoppage-time goals, with Iyenoma Udogie netting a dramatic winner to clinch a Round of 16 berth for the Italians.
