Argentina and England played a 0-0 draw on Monday in an Under-20 World Cup match that promised much but delivered little.

Argentina had an slight edge in possession but its top forwards Erik Lamela and Juan Iturbe were able to finish against a somewhat understrength England side.

Argentina has four points in two matches in Group F - probably enough to reach the knockout stage - and England has two points.

Argentina finishes group play Thursday against North Korea and England faces Mexico. Mexico defeated North Korea 3-0 earlier on Monday.
