Argentina Make Light Work Of Mexico

International Friendly 

Result: Argentina 2-0 Mexico

Date: 17 November 2018

Venue: Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes

Argentina made light work of Mexico after they registered a 2-0 win at Estadio Mario Alberto Kempes in the early hours of Saturday morning.

This was the first of two international friendlies against the Mexicans, with the two sides set to lock horns in the next few days.

The game got off to a lively start with Raul Jimenez hitting the crossbar, while Marco Fabian also forced goalkeeper Agustin Marchesin into a fine save in the opening 10 minutes.

Argentina had to wait until the 33rd minute for their first real opening as Giovani Lo Celso did well to play in Paulo Dybala, who was thwarted by a fine save from Ochoa.

The opening goal arrived just before the halftime break as Argentine defender Funes Mori rose well to head home Dybala's free-kick.

Both coaches opted for numerous changes at the start of the second to inject fresh legs in to the encounter.

The changes seemed to have had an effect on the encounter as changes were hard to come by in the opening 15 minutes of the stanza.

That prompted even more changes from the Argentina side as the likes of Mauro Icardi, Franco Vázquez and Maximiliano Meza were introduced.

The next bit of goal-mouth play arrived after 83 minutes as Argentina doubled their lead as Renzo Saravia's cross was deflected into the net by Mexico's Brizuela.

That proved to be the final chance of the half as La Albiceleste ran out comfortable winners on the day.

History Beckons At Makhulong!
