Argentina comfortably beat Jamaica 3-0 in their second friendly of the international team break with a new exhibition of Leo Messithat despite the fact that he was a substitute for having had a few tenths of morning feverachievement a double in just three minutes to sentence the match.
La Albiceleste closes the last window before the World Cup with another win and now has 35 games unbeaten. Thus, the team led by Lionel Scaloni is postulated as one of the great favorites in Qatar with a stellar Messi. First they beat Honduras, also with another two goals from the Argentine star of Paris Saint-Germain, and this time it was Jamaica, besieged by the Argentines, owners of the ball with a stellar Messi from his entrance to the pitch in the 56th minute.
Julian Alvarez, the young Manchester City player, maintained his idyll with the goal by opening the scoring in the first fifteen minutes after an assist from Lautaro Martínez. In the second half, Messi entered the field and it didn’t take long for him to intimidate an impotent rival defense before the repeated arrivals of the Albicelestes.
But it was not until minute 86, when the captain of the national team put the second after a shot from outside the area. And three minutes later, he would show off his deployment again to make the final 3-0 with a direct free kick that he launched with great mischief: he took advantage of the fact that the Jamaican goalkeeper thought he was going to throw it over the crossbar, and placed it low and glued to the stick.
