Egypt out after Argentina loss
Egypt were bundled out of the 2011 FIFA Under-20 World Cup on Tuesday after an extraordinary 2-1 loss to Argentina in the Last 16.
All three goals in the game came from the penalty-spot with the Argentineans ultimately winning more favour with the referee.
Facundo Ferreyra should have given Argentina the lead midway through the first half, but he headed over when unmarked from a corner.
Mohamed El Neny forced a fine save from Esteban Andrada, but shortly afterwards Argentina opened the scoring.
Carlos Luque was adjudged to have been fouled in the penalty-area and Erik Lamela stepped up to fire home the spot-kick, though Egypt goalkeeper Ahmed Elshenawi did get a firm hand to the shot.
And it was a repeat performance in the second half as Luque again won a penalty and Lamela converted to give Argentina a 2-0 lead.
Egypt were given a route back into the game with 20 minutes to go as Adrian Martinez fouled Saled Gomaa in the penalty area, and Mohamed Salah scored from the spot.
Ahmed Hegazi almost equalised late in the game as his header was cleared off the line in the final chance of the game.
