Messi Stars In Stars In 7-0 Bolivia Thrashing

International Friendly

Result: Argentina 7-0 Bolivia

Date: 05 August 2015

Venue: BBVA Compass Stadium

Sergio Aguero, Lionel Messi and Ezequiel Lavezzi all grabbed braces, as Argentina thrashed Bolivia 7-0 in an international friendly.

La Albiceleste coach, Gerardo Martino, started with the likes of Messi, Carlos Tevez, Javier Mascherano on the bench, while Lavezzi and Augero started in the attack.

Lavezzi handed the Argentines the lead after just six minute, as he latched onto a pass from Aguero, before firing a low effort past Daniel Vaca.

Gerardo Martino's side had to wait until to the 34th minute to get their second goal, as Augero lobbed the on-rushing Vaca, after being played in by Roberto Pereyra.

Lavezzi then completed his brace just before the halftime break, as the Paris Saint-Germain striker combined with Augero once again, before calmly slotting home.

Argentina then added a fourth goal in the 59th minute when Lavezzi turned provider to pick out Aguero in the box and the striker made no mistake from close range.

Martino introduced Messi after the hour-mark and scored minutes after his introduction when he headed home Milton Casco's cross from the right.

The Barcelona superstar got his second of the night in the 75th minute, when Aguero picked up his third assist of the night to play in Messi, who calmly rounded Vaca to slot into an empty net.

Angel Correa rounded off the scoring in the 84th minute with fine first-time finish, after being played in by Matías Kranevitter.
