Substitute Messi scores double in Argentina’s win over Jamaica

New Jersey: Substitute Lionel Messi scored two goals in the second half to lead Argentina to a 3-0 win over Jamaica in preparing for the World Cup in New Jersey last night. Argentina opened their doors in the 13th minute when Lautaro Martinez dribbled the Jamaican defenders inside thearea penalty before passing to Julian Alvarez, who calmly put the ball in network from close range. Reports stated that Messi was suffering from flu-like symptoms before the match, but he participated in the 56th minute and scored his first goal when he overtook several defenders and scored with a powerful shot four minutes before the end. He added his second goal three minutes later with a free kick to extend Argentina’s unbeaten run to 35 games. (Reuters)
