With the second full day of competition wrapped up at the IBSA Blind Football World Championships, favorites to win it all Brazil and Argentina have emerged victorious.
Brazil defeated Turkey 1 – 0 in Group B play. Turkey had several scoring opportunities including a pair of penalties at 8 meters out, but they were unable to capitalize on these. In Group C, Argentina defeated Spain 1 – 0. Fraulán Padillo scored Argentina’s lone goal. In other games, China defeated Colombia 1 – 0. Their lone goal was scored in the first half. South Korea and Germany are still to play later today.
So far, the competition has been a low scoring affair. The first day was full of surprises, but after those games, the expected top teams performed more or less as expected.
