MOST COMMENTED

Argentina is the firm favorite to win its sixth Under-20 World Cup after edging highly touted Mexico, 1-0, in the quarterfinals on Sunday in Ottawa.

Maximiliano Moralez scored Argentina's winning goal just before halftime on a shot that deflected off Mexican Julio Cesar Dominguez. Mexico's best chance came in the first half when star Carlos Vela hit the post.

Argentina meets Chile, a 4-0 winner over Nigeria in overtime, in one semifinal.

Austria, which upset the USA, 2-1, in overtime, faces the Czech Republic, which eliminated European champion Spain in a shootout after their game ended 1-1.
