Watch: Drama As Amajita Clash Sees Seven Goals

There was drama galore in Poland last night as South Africa's first game at the 2019 U20 World Cup saw VAR, penalties, a red card and seven goals.

Check out images from the game in gallery above

The game ended 5-2 at Tychy Stadium after a brace from Ezequiel Barco along with goals from Fausto Vera, Julian Alvarez and Adolfo Gaich made sure that Keenan Phillips first half equaliser and Lyle Foster's second half penalty counted for nothing more than a consolation.

Thabo Senong will have been happy with this side's first half performance after they rallied back to 1-1 after conceding an early goal in the fourth minute, however two VAR decisions went against them in the second stanza as a penalty was given to the Argentines - which was slotted away by the highly-rated Barco - and then Phillips' yellow card was converted to a straight red after a reckless kick on his own byline.

Following the penalty and red card, there was another blow for Senong as Khulekani Kubheka had to be stretchered off with an injury, however - as previously reported - indications are that he will be ok for the next game against South Korea.

Argentina ended the game with 25 shots to Amajita's 12 and with 65% possession, though there will be an air of what could've been for Senong and his technical team had they taken their first half chances and not had the penalty and red card decisions change the game in the second.

Take a look at the game highlights in the video below:

Do you think Amajita can get their first points on the board next week when they play their second game of the U20 World Cup?
