Giovanni Simeone and Argentina have run rampant at the South American under-20 championship, but tougher competition awaits the Albiceleste in the second round.
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. In the South American under-20 championship, the aforementioned four teams have been knocked out. Six are still standing, and over the next few days, they will play one another in the tournament's decisive second stage.

The stakes now rise. Four of the remaining six will make it through to this year's Under-20 World Cup. One will join host Brazil in next year's Olympics; another will...

Walter Roque -- a Uruguayan pioneer who served South American football

Uruguayan and South American football as a whole owe much to the work down by Walter Roque, on and off the pitch.

Walter Roque was hardly a household name all over the football world, but he was an important figure in South America, and his death last Tuesday at the age of 77 was a significant event. So much of the glorious history of the South American game can be told through his life story.

A small left winger, Roque was part of the Uruguay side that won the 1956 Copa America, and it is worth pausing to reflect on the significance of the sky blue shirt at that time.

Uruguay had won the World Cup twice,...

Diego Fagundez's decision: Play with Uruguay Under-20s or wait for U.S.?

Diego Fagundez is facing a crucial decision for his international future. Play for Uruguay or wait for the U.S.?

Diego Fagundez has long been hoping to return to the U.S. national team program, but citizenship issues have taken his international career south. Should the New England Revolution midfielder play for Uruguay in Under-20 World Cup qualifiers, he will be unable to switch to the U.S. in the future.

But Fagundez, who played for U.S. junior teams as a 13- and 14-year-old, is planning to make the most of his situation.

Fagundez, 19, is among 27 players on a provisional roster preparing for the South...

A week's worth of watching the international 'week of football'

The ESPN FC team discuss Tuesday's international friendlies, including Scotland's loss at home to England and what the United States need to do to get back on track.

With the novelty of the "Week of Football" wearing off, ESPN FC asked Iain Macintosh to watch as many games as he possibly could and tell us whether he still thought it was a good idea at the end. Here's what he made of it all. -- FC editors

Turkey vs. Brazil

For some reason impossible to comprehend, British broadcasters have no interest in a relatively meaningless exhibition game between two foreign nations, but we are made of sturdy stuff at ESPN FC, and lights are cast upon...

Stakes are high in South American friendlies as players look to impress

Brazil's Rafael Cabral, Uruguay's Giorgian De Arrascaeta and Peru's Carlos Ascues all have the chance to stake their claim for a national team spot in the coming weeks.

As the Copa America (next June and July in Chile) draws nearer, the stakes rise for South America's national teams. For the moment, the teams are just playing friendlies, but the competitive matches are coming closer: the next set of World Cup qualifiers get going soon after the Copa.

In 2015 there is only one set of FIFA dates before the real stuff starts. Over the next few days, then, some interesting experiments will be carried out with coaches wanting to take a long, hard look at some of their...

Next game between historic rivals Nacional and Penarol has title weight

The chance for Nacional to win the title on Sunday adds extra spice to their fiery rivalry with Penarol.

Battle resumes on Sunday in the oldest derby outside the British Isles. Since June 1900 the big two clubs in Montevideo, Uruguay, Nacional and Penarol, have been fighting out a bitter rivalry.

At the start, though, Penarol went by another name: Central Uruguay Railway Cricket Club, which rather gives away the English origins of the institution. Soon, though, the identity of the club was transformed; as Penarol they attracted a following among poor Italian immigrants flooding into Uruguay, people...
