Sudamericano Sub 20: Chile 2-0 Bolivia


Chile made it two wins from two in the Sudamericano Sub 20 tournament after defeating Bolivia 2-0 in Mendoza courtesy of goals to Nicolás Castillo and Cristián Cuevas.

The Chileans dominated right from the start with Nicolás Castillo, Bryan Rabello and Cristián Cuevas causing plenty of headaches for their Bolivian opponents. However a combination of poor finishing, some fine saves from Bolivian goalkeeper Guillermo Viscarra, resolute Bolivian defending and the woodwork meant that the match remained scoreless come the half time whistle.

Seven minutes into the second half the la rojita got the goal their dominance deserved as Nicolás Castillo got on the end of a brilliant through ball from Diego Rubio to open the scoring. In the 72nd minute the lights went out in the stadium which delayed the match for ten minutes. The delay didn’t do much to stop the Chilean dominance as they looked to build on the scoreline.

The Chileans got their second goal in the last minute of the match after Nicolás Maturana got on the end of a long before holding off his opponent and putting the ball on a plate for Cristián Cuevas to put into an empty net.
