Category: Blind football

First tie at La Madriguera in the 2022 IBSA Blind Football World Grand Prix in Puebla, Mexico, between the host national team and Argentina, both temporarily leaders of the standings. The match was, for that reason, one of the main attractions of Day 3 of the competition.

Although the null as the final score, there was plenty of excitement, with several goal attempts for both sides, revealing a Mexican goalkeeper, Carlos Minchaca, in an awesome plan, defending tough situations by the Argentinian squad.

The big winner of this first match was, of course, Brazil, which benefited from the tie and also took the best out of their own game by easily defeating Costa Rica 7-0, becoming the tournament’s most prolific scoring team with 11 goals scored in three matches.
