The defender played 90 minutes at right-back as Argentina lost 2-0 to their South American rivals on Tuesday evening.
Goals from Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus and Liverpool’s Roberto Firmino proved decisive as the Samba stars progressed to the final at the expense of Lionel Messi and Co.
But Foyth grabbed a fair few admirers with a body feint that sent Barcelona star Philippe Coutinho in completely the wrong direction.
Normally deployed as a centre-back at Spurs under Mauricio Pochettino, Foyth enjoyed a solid showing at full-back against the likes of Firmino, Jesus and Coutinho.
