Fringe Players Fail to Impress as Argentina, Colombia Draw 0-0 in Friendly

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. – Argentina and Colombia played out a goalless draw in a friendly match in East Rutherford on Tuesday, as both teams looked to bounce back from disappointing World Cup campaigns.

The two South American nations were eliminated from the Round of 16 in Russia, with Argentina losing a 4-3 thriller to eventual winners France, while Colombia were dumped out on penalties to semifinalists England.

With Lionel Messi rested by the Albiceleste on Tuesday night, and Colombia’s James Rodriguez also given the night off, there was ample opportunity for the respective squads’ fringe players to make an impression.

It was the two goalkeepers, however, who ultimately came out on top, with Franco Armani for Argentina and his counterpart David Ospina making a string of impressive saves.

Despite the fact neither team was able to break the deadlock, the game was open and lively, especially in the first half.

The second period was a scrappier affair, with several late tackles drawing yellow cards, while a series of substitutions, as is typical in friendly matches, also hindered the game’s flow.

Argentina’s next match will be against fierce rivals Brazil on Oct. 17, while Colombia will take on the United States on Oct. 12.
