|Colombia u20||-||Argentina u20|
Escalante was bad in this match. He doesn´t seem to know what neutrality means. Argentina had to win, so CONMEBOL designated a referee for a small country. That way Argentian wins. It happened before, like in Argentina vs Peru for the WC preliminaries to South Afrika 2010.
Escalante whistled a penalty for Argentina in the 13th minute and the Colombian player got the yellow card. 2 mistakes. Firstly: It was not a penalty and secondly: if it was a penalty the defender should have been red carded.
Argentina Red Card?
Escalante's assistant told him something, the video had not taken it, but Escalante showed the red card to an Argentina player. As I said, I have to believe the assistant because the video showed nothing.
Argentina wiil go to the Oympics, Colombia will have to improve a lot if they want to do something better in the WC in his Country. Escalante will referee again, but he will be under pressure because now for all who saw this match he is a pupil of CONMEBOL and does what CONMEBOL wants him to do.
The match was boring, Argentina tried to attack but couldn´t. When Colombia tried to play, Argentina stopped them with fouling, mostly unpunished.
