Argentina Win Big Without Messi, Neymar's Brazil Cruise To Victory

Argentina 3-0 Guatemala

Argentina recorded a comfortable 3-0 win over Guatemala in their first outing since their disappointing 2018 World Cup campaign,

Interim Lionel Scaloni left out a number of players from the World Cup squad, including Lionel Messi.

The absence of Messi did not affect the side as they went ahead through Gonzalo Nicolás Martínez's penalty in the 27th minute.

Giovani Lo Celso, who did not play a single minute at the World Cup,  doubled the lead in the 35th with a stunning volley from 25-yards out.

Giovanni Simeone, the son of Atletico Madrid coach Diego, rounded off the scoring with a goal on his debut.

United States 0-2 Brazil

Brazil made light work of the United States as they recorded a 2-0 win at the MetLife Stadium.

Neymar was named permanent captain for Selecao earlier this week, and he was named in the attack alongside Roberto Firmino and Douglas Costa.

It was Costa and Firmino who combined for the first goal, as the former raced down the right flank before crossing for the Liverpool star, who tapped home from close range.

The second goal minutes before the break when Neymar converted a spot-kick after Fabinho had been brought down in the box..
