Soccer and a rivalry match in the Under-20 World Cup. England met Argentina for a showdown in Colombia.

Both sides are in Group F for the Under-20 World Cup, and Argentina had the ball more, but its top forwards were unable to finish.

England's Callum Henry McManaman, related to ex-Liverpool star Steve McManaman, almost scored, but saw the goalkeeper stop his shot.

This would prove to be a difficult match with a deadlock too tough to break. England and Argentina played to a scoreless draw. Argentina has four points, good enough to reach the knockout stage. England holds two points and needs to win its last group match to advance.
