ARGENTINA 1 VENEZUELA 1: SAMPAOLI’S MEN HELD TO COSTLY DRAW
Despite a dominant performance, Argentina drew 1-1 at home to lowly Venezuela in World Cup qualifying.
Argentina were held to what may prove to be a costly 1-1 draw at home to Venezuela in World Cup qualifying on Tuesday.
The hosts dominated in Buenos Aires, but remarkably fell behind early in the second half when Jhon Murillo struck for Venezuela.
Venezuela, bottom of the CONMEBOL table, had been on the back foot throughout, and Argentina managed a quick response through a Rolf Feltscher own goal.
But Jorge Sampaoli’s men were unable to find a second, having frustratingly been denied throughout the first half by Venezuela goalkeeper Wuilker Farinez.
A hamstring injury to Angel Di Maria in the first half made it even trickier, while Lionel Messi was unable to have a major impact.
The draw was enough to at least lift Argentina into fifth – the play-off spot – heading into the final two matches in October.
