Argentina’s Claudio Echeverri announced himself to the world with a stunning hat-trick in their 3-0 victory over Brazil in their U17 World Cup quarter-final.

Fittingly, the River Plate forward wears his country’s iconic No. 10 jersey and did it proud in the win over their old rivals, making it a memorable double for the Albiceleste in this fixture this week after the senior side’s win at the Maracanã.

He grabbed his first on 28 minutes to put Argentina into a commanding half-time position.

After the break, the 17-year-old turned on the style and Brazil had no answer to it as he struck twice more to claim the match ball and fire his country into the final four.


Earlier today, Germany reached the semi-final of the competition with a 1-0 win over Spain.

After a goal-less first half, Germany struck first for the opener on 64 minutes when they were awarded a penalty.

From the spot, Borussia Dortmund youngster Paris Brunner stepped up to score what proved to be the only goal of the game and fire his side through.

Deep into injury-time, Raúl Jiménez was sent off for La Roja.

On Saturday, France face Uzbekistan, while Mali meet Morocco as they aim to join Argentina and Germany in the final four.
