The irrepressible raw talent of Ghana is the only remaining obstacle in the path of Argentina’s youth team towards a record fourth FIFA World Youth Championship title.

Two more goals from the outstanding Javier Saviola were the spark that lit Argentina’s comfortable 5-0 win over Paraguay in Buenos Aires, taking his championship total to a record ten.

With previous World Youth wins in 1979, 1995, and 1997, Argentina look the favourites to claim the new silver trophy on Sunday – but Ghana will certainly not go easily.

The Africans grabbed two goals in the last seven minutes against Egypt in the semi-final in Cordoba, most of the foregoing action having been fairly evenly shared.
