Argentina Pummels Iraq 4-0 in Friendly

BUENOS AIRES – Argentina steamrolled Iraq 4-0 on Thursday in a friendly match played in Saudi Arabia, where the Albiceleste will face archrivals Brazil next week.

Lautaro Martinez scored the first goal in the 18th minute with a header and Roberto Pereyra – who entered the game at the start of the second half – set the score at 2-0 in the 53rd minute.

Argentina’s third goal came in the 82nd minute, when German Pezzella got his head to a corner kick, and Franco Cervi made it 4-0 with a goal in the final minute of regulation.

Playing without captain Lionel Messi and several other starters, Argentina quickly displayed superior skills, with 74 percent possession in the first half.

The second half was riddled with interruptions for substitutions, failing to deliver the thrill of a match played by two equal opponents.

Argentina will go against Brazil on Tuesday at King Abdullah Sports City in Riyadh.
