Weather conditions were fairly good for football, and PALACIO CASOCA saw a crowd turnout of 54023. Jerome Dijksman was the appointed referee with assistance provided by and . Argentina started off with a 3-4-3 lineup. They fielded: Baillo - Sainz, Noruega, González Solares - Bono, Urrutia, Camacho, Zalabardo - Aimar, Moreno, Zurita.

El Salvador had chosen a strategic 4-5-1 formation. The following players had been chosen: Pacheco - Ordoñez, Moyetón, Aburto, Máñez - Durazo, Manzano, Velazquez, Chimichurri, Escobedo - Salas.

El Salvador used their passable skill at pressing to cut off the attack angles of their opponents all over the field. After some beautiful movement down the left wing, Amancio Moreno scored for Argentina putting them ahead 1 - 0, after 2 minutes. El Salvador pressed their opponents, causing the game to be a bit of a stalemate at times. 24 minutes into the game, El Salvador had difficulty finding their positions and their organisation dropped to inadequate. 30 minutes into the match, the visitors' central line of defence had to look on as Alberto González Solares broke through, making the score 2 - 0 for Argentina. Confident in their lead, Argentina's players relaxed and focused more on defending the lead than increasing it. 33 minutes into the match, the visitors' central line of defence had to look on as Nestor Urrutia broke through, making the score 3 - 0 for Argentina. Rafael Camacho could have increased the lead after 42 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park. The teams went for the halftime break at 3 - 0. Argentina had most of the ball, with 71 percent of possession.

The coach gave his players an extra tactical briefing during the break, and after that El Salvador had solid organisation. With 48 minutes played, Argentina put themselves up 4 - 0 when the visiting defenders lost the ball to Amancio Moreno, who came up from the left and proceeded to coolly round the keeper and knock the ball home. A speedy charge from the left side of the field increased the lead of Argentina to 5 - 0 as Amancio Moreno finished it off competently, firing in from an acute angle. By then Amancio Moreno had scored three goals - a hat trick! Ignasio Zalabardo could have increased the lead after 78 minutes, but his shot hit the post after a nice combination in the middle of the park. 83 minutes into the game, Carlos Escobedo had to leave the pitch due to a knee injury. In came Efren Coto. Argentina had most of the ball, with 68 percent of possession.

The most dominating Argentina player was without a doubt Rodrigo Baillo. However, Jorge Aimar made a disastrous appearance. El Salvador's best player was Felipe Máñez. Efren Coto on the other hand, had a terrible day. The match ends 5 - 0.
