Ruthless Argentina Net Six Past Singapore Without Messi

International Friendly 

Result: Singapore 0-6 Argentina 

Date: 13 June 2017

Venue: The National Stadium 

Argentina, who were without Lionel Messi and Sergio Aguero, proved too strong for Singapore as they romped to a 6-0 win in their international friendly.

After a quiet opening to the encounter, the visitors broke the deadlock after 25 as Frederico Fazio rose well to head home Alejandro Gomez's corner.

Six minutes later, the lead was doubled through Joaquín Correa, who turned home Paulo Dybala low cross towards the front post.

Despite the visitors' dominance in the opening stanza, the score remained 2-0 as the sides entered the halftime break.

Ever Banega and Lucas Alario were introduced for La Albiceleste at the start of the second half with Correa and Lucas Biglia.

Gómez then registered his name on the score-sheet on 60 minutes with a wonderful effort from 25-yards out to make it 3-0.

Argentina grabbed their fourth goal after 74 minutes as Leandro Paredes did well to create space for himself before curling the ball into the far corner from the edge of the box.

The visitors were not done there, as Angel Di Maria knocked the ball into the path of Alario, who fired a first-time effort from close range, 0-5.

Di Maria rounded off the scoring for Jorge Sampaoli's charges in the third minute of stoppage time after turning home Ignacio Fernandez' cross from point-blank range.
