XtraTime Web Desk: Argentine Football Federation will decide the future of future of Jorge Sampaoli in the end of July after the coach takes charge of the nation’s U-20 side.




Argentina Football Association (AFA) president Claudio Tapia and vice-president Daniel Angelici met Sampaoli on Monday and it was agreed the coach will stay in charge despite the last-16 exit at the World Cup.




The former Chile and Sevilla boss was expected to be sacked after Argentina were knocked out by France, with his tactics and team selection during the tournament raising eyebrows.




But Sampaoli has been given a stay of execution after his assistant Sebastian Beccacece, who was set to lead the Under-20 squad at the COTIF L’Alcudia tournament, left his post to take over at Defensa y Justicia.

Sampaoli will now assume that responsibility for the U20 competition, which runs from July 28 until August 7.

However, the AFA said in a statement that his future will be reviewed at the next meeting of its executive committee at the end of July.
