Venezuela said goodbye with defeat

Argentina thrashed the eliminated Venezuela 4-1 in the last day of the group stage of the South American U-23 Pre-Olympic Championship and remained as líder of Group A, waiting to specify their rivals in the final home run of the contest that takes place in Colombia.

The albicelestes, who played with a substitute payroll, went up the scoreboard after starting losing with a penalty kick transformed into a goal by midfielder Yeferson Soteldo, who stung the ball in the Panenka style.

The talented Santos from Brazil finished off with a score a brilliant performance in the first half, in which he dribbled right-back Marcelo Herrera.

But in the second part, Fernando Batista's men turned the result in the duel played at the Hernán Ramírez Villegas stadium in the city of Pereira (center-west).

The tall central player Nazareno Colombo, from Estudiantes de La Plata, connected a Gastón Togni cross in the 49th minute that burst the goal of Cristopher Varela.

Then, in '74, Herrera got rid of Soteldo's pressure and threw the ball into the area. Matías Zaracho, the only starter who played from the first minute, pushed from the ground to lead the comeback.

The Racing de Avellaneda winger then gave a header for Julián Álvarez, the regular starter who entered in the 68th minute, to score the third in the 86th.

The feat culminated in a score by Nahuel Bustos at 90 + 1. He missed a penalty, but profited from the goalkeeper's rebound and amended the ruling.

Argentina will contest the final homer of the Pre-Olympic in the city of Bucaramanga (northeast) together with another representative from Group A, who will start between Colombia and Chile, Brazil and a second classified from Group B. The coffee growers will only need a draw to give the jump to the end.
