The wait is over: the ODESUR Asunción 2022 Games have begun. Carrying great expectations, fan-favorite Argentina opened the men’s category tournament against the team from Uruguay.

Divided into two groups, the men’s team kicked off the Games. Argentina, Uruguay and Peru are all in Group A, while Brazil, Bolivia, Paraguay and Chile make up Group B.

The women, who start tomorrow, will all face off against each other: Argentina, Uruguay, Peru, Chile and the host, Paraguay.



It was an auspicious start for the team led by Mariano Ronconi with the “Leones” obtaining their first victory against the “Cimarrones” without difficulty.

The game opened quickly in favor of Argentina, scoring their first goal in the first minute after a great play by young  Ignacio Ibarra, who easily left his mark on the rival goal.

The Argentine squad was superior to its Uruguayan counterpart, leaving goalkeeper Hernando Nehuen without much to do in the game.

The game ended with a  17-0 score. The goals were scored by Ignacio Ibarra x 3, Lucas Vila x 3, Juan Catan x 2, Nicolas Acosta, Tobias Martins x 2, Lautaro Ferrero x 3, Bautista Capurro, Santiago Tarazona and Matías Rey.

In the second game of the day, Chile beat Bolivia 24-0.

The superiority of the trans-Andean team was clear from the beginning of the match with Chile opening the score early on. The incredible effectiveness of the Chilean squad widened the difference even more with every passing quarter.

In the second half, Brazil extended their advantage and went up 5-nil, although Paraguay was able to score for their side toward the end of the match.

The game ended with a 6-2, a  score that could not capture just how hard the teams battled, with two cards for each team.
