Argentina coach Mascherano speaks

Earlier, Sports Brief had reported how the Head coach of the Argentinian under-20 national team, Javier Mascherano, has claimed that two mistakes cost his side against Nigeria at the ongoing FIFA U20 World Cup.

Nigeria knocked the hosts out of the tournament earlier this week, as the Round of 16 cracker ended 2-0 in favour of the Flying Eagles.

After a goalless first half, Ibrahim Muhammad opened the scoring in the 61st minute when he slotted home from the area, with Rilwanu Sarki adding the icing on the cake in stoppage time to make it 2-0.

Nigeria have progressed to the quarter-final of the competition, with this being the first time they defeated a South American side at the U20 World Cup.
