A 3-0 win for Lionel SCALONI’s Argentina against Guatemala saw many players impressing.
The first half saw a quick and a very pressing Argentina side. Giovanni SIMEONE had the first real opportunity of the match. The ball fell to SIMEONE but the Fiorentina man’s header went over the bar. Minutes later, a free kick by Leandro PAREDES found Ramiro FUNES MORI as he was left unmarked but his header went wide of the goal.
Argentina’s first goal came off a penalty kick which was excellently dispatched by Gonzalo MARTINEZ. That opened the floodgates for more goals.
Giovani LO CELSO made it 2-0 with a half volley from the edge of the penalty area. That goal was his debut goal for his country and one of the better goals you’ll see this season.
Another player had a debut goal with Giovanni SIMEONE making it 3-0 right before the break. A lovely dribble inside the area and his shot beat the goalkeeper.
The second half did not bring any goals.
