It was an ideal campaign for Los Bats,as they won the five matches they playedin the Japanese lands. In a highly outstanding tournament, they managed to beat each of the rivals that stood ahead. That's how they beat Thailand 4-1 in the premiere, and then beat the same rival in the final and with the same result: 2-0 over England. The third round was Turkey and again the albiceleste prevailed, this time by the minimum, 1-0. Already in the semifinals, Argentina had to face Spain and without contemplation beat him by 2 to 0, to reach the final match.
