Argentina Suffers Dramatic Collapse In 2-2 Draw With Colombia

Argentina drew 2-2 with Colombia in World Cup qualifying on Tuesday night at El Metro in Barranquilla after Los Cafeteros were able to snatch an equalizer with the game’s final attack. 

The detective work done by all neutrals when watching this Albiceleste side is to determine how much progress has been made since the nervy, need-a-Messi-hat-trick-on-the-final-day 2018 qualifying cycle, but it remains difficult to say. 

The difference between the two cycles after six games is just one point (although it’s a positive point).
