The young Indian team will be locking horns with the Argentina national U20 football team in their fourth and final match of the Cotif Cup, a Mini Mundial Sub U-20 Men’s Football Tournament. There is no guessing that the Albicelestes will have an upper hand as they are a very strong side, full of star-studded players who have even represented top-flight clubs such as Inter. However, the Indian colts have also produced some stellar performances and will hope to snatch a point out of this one by maintaining the same solidarity they did in their previous match.

The White and Sky blues, on the other hand, will be looking to hand Floyd Pinto's boys a thumping defeat. Previous season's runners-up will be the clear favourites going into this match.

The Indian colts went 2-0 down against local side Murciana and then received a 0-3 drubbing at the hands of Mauritania U20s in their next match of the Cotif Cup.

In their previous encounter, the Indian U20 football team held a strong Venezuela U-20 side to a goalless draw, producing a disciplined performance, which even received praise from the opposition's Coach.

Floyd Pinto has led the team well and if they are able to produce a similar result against Argentina U20s like they did against Venezuela then it will certainly do them a lot of good and be a testament of the team's ability.

The Indian team, formed with boys that played the FIFA U-17 World Cup and those who represented India in the AFC U-19 Qualifiers in 2017, has shown positive signs and is very much capable of pulling something extraordinary out of the bag.

Argentina have won the FIFA U-20 World Cup 6 times and a match against them promises to be a great learning opportunity for the Indian U20 team.
