Argentina: The Copa de la Costa stays here?
Argentina kept the Copa de la Costa at home after bending their opponents Paraguay and current Copa Latina holders Uruguay. On the sands of Mar de Ajo (Buenos Aires) Petrasso’s lads proved their constant growth and secured the Cup after beating eastern neighbours in the last game 4-2. In their previous match, the albiceleste had also won Paraguay (4-5), who, in turn, had also beaten the charrúa (7-4) in the tournament’s opening.
The fact that maybe the prior favourites, Uruguay, ended this Copa de la Costa Argentina in the latter position proves the high level and competitiveness in the CONMEBOL area, which is going to be clearly stated again in the FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup Qualifier taking place in a couple of months.
