Messi leads Argentina to winning start in World Cup qualifying

0 minutes, 32 seconds Read

Just before the break, Lautaro Martínez slid in to meet Rodrigo de Paul and came close and his shot hit the post.

Messi took the lead himself in the 69th minute but his low shot looked weak and was comfortably cleared by Galindez.

But Messi’s goal stunned the crowd of 80,000 at the Estadio Monumental and from then on it was all easy for Argentina.

De Paul, who was excellent throughout, dribbled past substitute Angel Di Maria who was setting up the right tackle, but his effort was wide.

De Paul then drew a good save from Galindez at the end with a close blast at the near post.
