After opening with a 2-1 win over Bolivia, the U.S. boys under-17 national team was brought back down to earth two days later when it fell to Argentina, 5-1, in a match played at Italiano Deportivo's facilities on the outskirts of Buenos Aires.

Coached by former World Cup champion Jose Luis Brown, the Argentine U-17s raced out to a 3-0 lead at the half on goals by Ignacio Ameli, Sergio Araujo and Daniel Villalva. Charles Renken reduced the deficit to two goals in the 70th minute, but Argentina pulled away on goals by Matias Sosa and Eduardo Rotondi.

Against Bolivia, Stefan Jerome and Marlon Duran scored to give the Americans the win

Their third game in Argentina was scheduled for Friday against Uruguay.
