Lautaro Martinez stole the show to lead Argentina to an impressive 4-0 win over Mexico in a friendly in Texas on Tuesday.
Martinez scored a stunning first-half hat-trick at the Alamodome as Lionel Scaloni’s men ran riot in the opening 45 minutes.
Inter forward Martinez was the star, netting three times and also helping Argentina – without the suspended Lionel Messi – win a penalty that was converted by Leandro Paredes.
Martinez came off at the break after putting Argentina in complete control as they saw out a comprehensive victory.
It was quite the way for Mexico to be handed their first defeat under head coach Gerardo Martino, who took over in January.
