Argentina and Chile through to U-20 Semis

Both Argentina and Chile were victorious last night to setup a mouthwatering semi-final between the two sides.

Argentina overcame fellow Latin Americans Mexico 1-0 in Ottawa. A Maxi Moralez strike just before half time was enough for the holders to take the victory over the hotly tipped Mexicans.

Four goals in extra time took Chile to a 4-0 victory over Nigeria in Montreal. Chile had chances to win the game before extra time, with Mauricio Isla and Jaime Grondona both guilty of missing good opportunities. The misses didn't come back to haunt them though, as two goals from Isla, one for Grondona and one for Mathias Vidangossy in extra time sealed their place in the semi-finals.

Argentina and Chile will now square off in the semi-final, to be played on the 19th July in Toronto.
