Under-17 FIFA World Cup 2023 Quarter-Finals: Captain Claudio Echeverri's Superb Hat-Trick Takes Argentina To 3-0 Win Over Brazil - In Pics

Argentina rode an incredible hat-trick from skipper Claudio Echeverri to overpower arch-rivals Brazil 3-0 in the quarterfinals of the FIFA Under-17 World Cup 2023 in Jakarta on Friday. Brazil, the defending champions, had a sub-par day in the field as the 17-year-old Echeverri ran the show. Echeverri, who represents Argentine side River Plate at the club level, opened the scoring in the 28th minute with a solo effort, dribbling past multiple Brazil players, before pulling the trigger. His shot deflected off an opponent and looped past the Brazilian goalkeeper. Echeverri’s second goal was the best of the lot. In the 59th minute, the Argentine captain received the ball at the edge of the box. He then evaded multiple Brazilian challenges, before slamming the ball in from a tight angle.
