The game started unexpectedly with Guatemala taking an early lead after Lisandro Martinez’s own goal. However, Argentina quickly equalized when a misplaced clearance landed at Messi’s feet, allowing him to score into an empty net.

Lautaro Martinez put Argentina ahead with a penalty just before halftime. In the second half, Argentina’s attacking prowess was on full display. Messi set up Martinez for his second goal, and then scored his own second goal after a pass from Angel Di Maria.

This victory sends Argentina into the Copa America with confidence, set to face Canada in their opener on June 20.
