Spain – Argentina – 6:1 (Diogo Costa, 12. CSIS, 27, 52, 74. Thiago Alcantara, 55. ASPAs, 77 – Otamendi, 39)
Missed due to muscular overstrain match with the Italians Messi again took to the field. At this time, as the reason appeared in minor damage to hamstring and other injuries that left Jorge Sampaoli without Aguero, Di Maria and Paredes.
Perhaps, the Argentine coach even regretted that decided not to cause the team Icardi with Debaloy, and continued the experiments in which his Spanish counterpart Julen lopetegui is not needed.
Asensio instead left the national team due to personal reasons David Silva, and Diogo Rodrigo Costa is at the point of attack – that all permutations of “red furies”.
Besides work in the opening, when two fresh player stumped Argentine defense and helped his coach to set a record: 18 straight matches at the head of the Spanish national team with goals. And this was only the beginning of the Argentine nightmare, which coincided with the 142 th game for the national team Mascherano, who hardly expected to overtake the record of Argentina Javier Zanetti on the day of humiliation of the national team.
Over the past 25 years with tennis account 6:1 the South Americans crushed the Bolivians only in 2009. Previous similar debacle – and is the largest defeat sky blue – happened at all in 1958, in the confrontation with the Czechs.
So he went into history and a brand new stadium “Wanda Metropolitano”, and make their first professional career hat-trick ISCO. What can I say: even De GEA scored a goal pass, having organized the output of Aspasa one-on-one. It is significant that all six of the Spanish shots on target resulted in goals, and, perhaps, good that Messi, who left the podium after the sixth goal, has not to this horror one relationship?
