Without Messi, Argentina went to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to thrash Iraq 4-0, before the superclassic with Brazil, which will be played on 16 October.
Franco Cervi's high point: Benfica's side made their debut in the Pampas squad and then Messi: took the ball, left opponents behind before shooting hard and cross, already inside the area, closing the accounts of the meeting.
Before Lautaro Martínez had opened the scoring and header of the pass of Marcos Acuña in the 18 minutes. Roberto Pereyra made it 2-0 in the 53rd minute, Germán Pezzella 3-0 in the 82nd. As a matter of curiosity, the four scorers made their first goal for Argentina's main national team.
