Argentina superstar Lionel Messi grabbed a brace as his side beat Nicaragua 5-1 in an international friendly on Friday.
The Barcelona superstar scored the opener in the 38th minute with a classic solo effort. Sixty seconds later Messi added a second from a rebound before goals from Lautaro Martinez (2) and Roberto Pereyra made it 5-0. Nicaragua did score a consolation through Juan Barrera from the penalty spot, but on the whole, it was a convincing display from Argentina.
Messi will be targeting Copa America glory this summer to finally win a major trophy with his country.
