    PAPEETE, Tahiti – El Salvador fell behind early and dropped a 4-1 decision to Argentina in the Group B opener for both on Thursday in the 2013 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup at To’ata Stadium.

     

    The Salvadorans, who are competing in the FIFA event for a fourth consecutive time, conceded two goals within the first five minutes. 

     

    At the end of the third minute, Cesar Leguizamon lashed home after a mishit bicycle kick by teammate Jonathan Leviscored on a bicycle kick, and the skillful Federico Hilaire struck 79 seconds later to give the South American champion an early 2-0 lead.

     

    For Hilaire, it was his record 17th goal for Argentina.

     

    Miguel De Ezeyza made it 3-0 for the South American champions 32 seconds into the second period, heading home directly from a throw-in.

     

    Elmer Robles put El Salvador on the scoreboard midway through the second period, but Lucas Medero ended any hopes of a comeback with an long-distance tally early in the third.

     

    The Cuscatlecos will look to bounce back Saturday against Netherlands, while Argentina faces Solomon Islands. Both matches will be at To’ata Stadium.

     

    NOTES: El Salvador defeated Argentina, 4-3, in the last Group B game at the 2011 FIFA Beach Soccer World Cup in Italy…El Salvador also lost its opener in the 2011 FIFA event, 11-2, to Portugal.
