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...
