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.

Six are still standing, and over the next few days, they will play one another in the tournament's decisive second stage.

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, Brazil show their flaws in South American U20 Championship

Angel Correa is Argentina's star, but their defending is a cause for concern.

The South American Under-20 Championship is mainly about individuals. After all, there's little point in a team winning continental and world titles at this level if none of its members go on to become important players for the senior national team. More than anything else, the focus in the tournament currently taking place in Uruguay is therefore on the best youngsters, the ones most likely to become household names all over the world.

But there is an interesting collective dimension too, especially...

Roy Hodgson overlooked Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi for Ballon d'Or

Javier Mascherano impressed for Argentina at the 2014 World Cup.

As we all know by now, Cristiano Ronaldo was voted the 2014 Ballon d'Or winner after another spectacular 12 months with Real Madrid.

He comfortably pipped Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Bayern Munich's Manuel Neuer to the accolade, as the Portugal international earned 37.66 percent of the votes.

The victor is decided by a voting system whereby captains, coaches and media from around the world pick their top three players over the last year.

Being England manager and all, Roy Hodgson selected...

Ex-Newcastle flop dresses up as 'fake' Caniggia for charity match

Former Newcastle United flop Daniel Cordone caused a bit of a scandal in Brazil at the weekend when he played in a veterans game and impersonated ex-Argentina star Claudio Caniggia.

After being advertised as taking part before the game, Caniggia himself wasn't able to play in Sunday's charity tie between Argentina and Brazil, with Cordone stepping in as a body (and hair) double.

According to reports, the big screens at the Arena das Dunas in Fortaleza displayed graphics before the game that showed...

Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo meet again

Are Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo friends? The two best players in the world went head-to-head again on Tuesday when Argentina met Portugal in a friendly and, naturally, the amateur body language experts were out in force to analyse their interactions.

In that spirit, let's take a look at the couple ourselves. First, in the Old Trafford tunnel, there appeared to be genuine affection between the two. 

Once they...
