Good news, Atlanta United’s players on international duty played soccer and don’t appear to have had anything bad happen to them.

Zeke puts a penalty in the net

Ezequiel Barco came on for the Argentina U-23s as the team gets ready for the Olympics. He made an impact off the bench scoring a penalty to even up the game at one a piece in injury time.

Argentina would come back and win 2-1 thanks to a goal in the 94th minute. The team will take on Saudi Arabia on Friday ahead of the tournament.

Josef scores for Venezuela, but doesn’t

Josef Martinez appeared for Venezuela during World Cup qualifiers off of the bench in the Vino Tinto 3-1 loss to Bolivia last Thursday in the 63rd minute. He also started and played 79 minutes for the team’s 0-0 draw against Uruguay. Josef scored in the 17th minute, but his goal was disallowed.

The group stage of the Copa America begins on Sunday for Venezuela as the team takes on Brazil.
