Argentina defeated Jamaica 3-0 on Tuesday evening in Harrison, New Jersey, in their final World Cup toasty game, extending their undefeated record to 35 games over 3 years. Lionel Messi scored a pair from the sideline to help Argentine National Team to extend their winning streak.
In the 13th minute of the match Argentina took their lead with a score from Julian Alvarez, and Leo added the first of his brace ten minutes after the half time, when he came off from the substitutes to bring his career record of goals scored which is ninety and only second to Portugal’s Cristiano Ronaldo for his country whose lead looks secure as of now.
3 months well beyond his 35th birthday, the 6 times Ballon D’or winner managed to score on even a left-footed strike from 23-yards in the 86th minute following some lovely passing with Lo Celso. Three minutes later, he added another goal on a diving header after Adrian Mariappa knocked down him outside of the penalty box.
Lionel Messi Scored A Brace To Keep Argentina Go Through Their Unbeaten Record Over The Past Three Years:
Running out on to the pitch, supporters twice reached Lionel Messi. When the first one approached Lionel Messi another ten minutes after his first goal of the brace, guards promptly pushed him over and encircled him. When the PSG forward netted his first strike, security once more responded.
Messi has 16 strikes for his lifetime on American soil after scoring only 4 goals in those sixteen each of Argentina’s 2 World Cup preparation games this month.
Within a minute further into second period, supporters cheered as Lionel Messi and his colleagues headed to a corner and began to reheat. They also cheered when Lionel Messi replaced Lautaro Martnez and took over as skipper from Angel Di Maria.
Messi, who inspired Argentina inside the second period and forced Jamaican goalkeeper Andre Blake to create two diving stops, won his country’s first major championship in the Copa America last year.
