Are Gio Simeone's U-20 heroics a false dawn or is Diego's son the real deal?

Giovanni Simeone celebrates scoring one of his nine goals in the South American Under-20 Championships.

If you were to cut open Diego Simeone, he will almost certainly bleed blue and white. The Atletico Madrid boss won 106 caps for Argentina, where coach after coach made him one of the first names on the team sheet. Now his son has made a promising start to his own international career.

With nine goals, Giovanni Simeone was by some distance the top scorer in the South American Under-20 Championships, which came to a conclusion in Uruguay on Saturday. At one point, the competition record (11 goals...

Diego Simeone congratulates son Giovanni for Argentina U-20 win

Diego Simeone has taken to social media to congratulate his son Giovanni Simeone after Argentina's under-20 side beat hosts Uruguay 2-1 in Montevideo and won the U-20 South American Championship for the first time in 12 years.

Atletico coach Diego was celebrating his team's 4-0 win over Real Madrid, but watched as Argentina went behind to Gaston Pereiro, before goals from Sebastian Driussi and Angel Correa turned it around.

He then found time to tweet: "The effort and work have their reward,...

Riquelme the last great leader of Argentine football

Juan Roman Riquelme announced his retirement after an illustrious career with Barcelona, Villarreal and Boca Juniors.

BUENOS AIRES -- Juan Roman Riquelme was mulling over the idea for years. Everyone remembers when, in 2012, with the strange backdrop of a Copa Libertadores final against Corinthians, he announced he was leaving Boca Juniors, that he was empty, that soccer had nothing left to offer him.

Then, faced with a concerted outcry, Riquelme returned to the fold. Full of sentimental phrases, he recovered from his fleeting apathy to renew his vows to his beloved team.

Now, it seems, he is leaving for good....

Juan Roman Riquelme: The master of his art will be missed by Argentina

The ESPN FC team reflect back on Juan Roman Riquelme's storied career and the crew is forced to pick which was the best professional footballer.

Towards the end of 2001, a tribute match for Argentine legend Diego Maradona was staged at Boca Juniors' famous stadium, La Bombonera, in Buenos Aires. The spectators included then-Argentina national team coach Marcelo Bielsa, who was roundly booed. However, the fans' ire had nothing to do with any falling out between Bielsa and Maradona, but rather the fact that the coach had no place in his team for Juan Roman Riquelme, the playmaker and idol of the Boca side of the time -- who announced his retirement...

Giovanni Simeone and Argentina have run rampant at the South American under-20 championship, but tougher competition awaits the Albiceleste in the second round.

With all due respect to Ecuador, Bolivia, Venezuela and Chile, it is time for the main event of the competition.

South American U20 Championships defined by exhaustion, tough schedule

Peru and Paraguay may have played out a dubious draw but blame the schedule more than anything.

Worst fears were realised when Group A came to a close in the South American Under-20 Championships.

Argentina had already booked their place in the decisive second stage. Behind them were three teams, Paraguay, Ecuador and Peru, all level on points. Two would join Argentina. One would be eliminated.

Ecuador had completed all their matches and could only watch from the sidelines, hoping for a decisive result in the match between the other two. But a draw between Paraguay and Peru would qualify...
