  • Description

    Soccer...and with the World Cup finals little more than two months away, Argentina, the host nation, gave themselves a psychological boost by beating fellow finalists Peru 2-1 in the first leg of the Ramon Castilla Cup in Buenos Aires on Sunday (19 March). With several players still involved in European competitions, Argentina's World Cup preparations are reported to have been going far from smoothly, but against the Peruvians they looked a well drilled side, with plenty of attacking flair.

    SYNOPSIS: Argentina, in the dark shorts, playing from left to right, always looked dangerous, and they should have gone in front when they were awarded an early penalty.

    Passarella's spot kick was hit firmly enough, but it was straight at the keeper.

    Fillol missed a penalty at the other end for Peru, then in the 40th minute Houseman headed Argentina into the lead.

    Pagnanini got a second for Argentina in the 66th minute. But with a minute to go Percy Rojas pulled one back for Peru, with a neatly taken header.
