Hong Kong 0-7 Argentina

Argentina bounced back from their weekend defeat to bitter rivals Brazil with a 7-0 rout of Hong Kongin Tuesday’s international friendly. Coach Gerardo Martino overhauled his starting line-up from the one that succumbed to two Diego Tardelli goals on Saturday, and it proved to be a one-sided affair with Gonzalo Higuain, Lionel Messi and Nicolas Gaitan all netting doubles to add to Ever Banega’s opener.

Hong Kong 0-7 Argentina


Argentina 0-2 Brazil

Diego Tardelli scored both goals as Brazil beat fellow South American giants Argentina 2-0 in a Beijing tussle billed as the Superclassico. The Atletico Mineiro striker grabbed the first after a defensive blunder in the Argentinian defence, and headed the second just after the hour mark. For Argentina, Lionel Messi missed a penalty when Brazil’s lead was just one goal, seeing his spot-kick saved by Jefferson. (October 11, 2014)
