Own goal by Enzo Fernández: Australia thus discounted against Argentina | VIDEO

The victory of the Argentina team was not in danger, until Australia’s discount goal arrived, in the round of 16 key of the Qatar 2022 World Cup. A goal against Enzo Fernández, after a shot by Craig Goodwin, meant the 2 -1 at Ahmad bin Ali Stadium.

At minute 77, after a bad rejection by Nicolás Otamendi, the ball reached Goddwin, who finished off with his left foot, in first. The ball, on the way, deflected off Fernández and surprised goalkeeper ‘Dibu’ Martínez, who was unable to react to prevent the score.

Motivated by the goal, Australia went for more and tried to get the equalizer. Garang Kuo had a great chance and the ‘Dibu’ responded brilliantly, in the final moments. The result was maintained and the ‘Albiceleste’ qualified for the quarterfinals.

Before that goal, Lionel Messi (35′) and Julián Álvarez (57′) were in charge of putting Argentina ahead. ‘Leo’ appeared in the area and, with great category, he shot. For his part, the ‘Spider’ took advantage of a gross mistake and was the author of a subtle definition.

Now, the Argentine team will face the Netherlands, which hours before defeated the United States (3-1) and ensured its presence in the next round. This meeting will take place on Friday, December 9 at the Lusail Stadium, from 2:00 pm (Peruvian and Colombian time) and 4:00 pm (Argentine time).
