Argentina’s latest Under-20 failure

As those who’ve kept up with the junior selección in my absence will be aware, Argentina’s Under-20s have failed to qualify for the final round of the soon-to-end Sudamericano Sub 20, being played in Mendoza, and with that failure, they won’t be going to the 2013 Under-20 World Cup in Turkey, the year after a similar failure to qualify for the 2012 London Olympic Football Tournament via the same qualifying competition. I wrote something on the reasons behind that failure for the website of UK magazine When Saturday Comes, and you can read it here.
