Deepak Tangri put India ahead after just four minutes before Aniket Jadhav's infraction reduced India to 10 men in the 50th minute. Despite being a man down, India did not lose heart and doubled their advantage through Anwar Ali's brilliant free-kick in the 68th minute. Argentina, out of sorts, did their best to turn the tie around but could only pull one back in the 72nd minute.

Am emotional about this U20 Indian football team as the majority of the boys are from India's FIFA 2017 World Cup team. Those kids are just 18 and they played like lions against Argentina. Suresh, Amarjit, Boris, Anwar, Aniket... will always have a special place in my heart.— Joy Bhattacharjya (@joybhattacharj) August 6, 2018

Game was 80 mins. 11 subs allowed. Argentina benched most players, conceded an own goal & hit the woodwork.
But India took on some of the top 25 youth talents from Argentina and beat them with 10 men. This is a huge feat. #INDvARG #COTIFU20
