Brazil notched up another major victory in the ongoing CONMEBOL U-20 qualifiers in Ecuador beating Argentina 1-0 and thus securing a berth at the forthcoming FIFA World Youth Championship in Argentina.

In a tense match, the Brazilians defeated their archrivals with a single goal scored by Ewerton after 39 minutes.

The remaining three berths for South America (WYC hosts Argentina are already qualified) are still up for grabs among the other four teams Paraguay, Ecuador, Chile and Colombia. The last matches of the final round will be played on 4 February.
