Lautaro Martinez's first-half hat trick sparked a rampant and Lionel Messi-less Argentina, which raced out to a 4-0 lead over El Tri by halftime in front of over 56,000 at the Alamodome in San Antonio and saw out the win by that scoreline in their friendly Tuesday night.

Mexico arrives highly motivated for the match after defeating their ultimate rivals, the USMNT on Friday with a 3-0 score to leave no doubt as to who the CONCACAF giant is.

"We knew the way that Mexico would play and we came out quickly to generate some chances".

The development was a shocking one for Mexico, which had been ideal in 11 games under Martino and captured the Concacaf Gold Cup title this summer. We knew that Mexico would dominate the first minutes and that's why we were prepared to go out on the counter attack.

"We gave out the feeling that we are a team, that's the important thing". Everyone played for their lives for their team mate and for wanting to be in the Argentina national team.

Sélection: L'Argentine brille, et Paredes également !
Martinez a tout d'abord mystifié trois défenseurs pour ouvrir le score d'un tir à ras de terre (1-0, 17e). Durant la nuit dernière, l'Argentine affrontait le Mexique lors d'une rencontre amicale.

We knew that if we recovered the ball, we would have to get it quickly to the striker.

"It's no good if we just defend well". We analyzed Mexico a lot and we were courageous enough to do what we had to do in this match.

"We want an Argentina national team that is competitive, that our opponents respect us".

Martinez was substituted at half-time, with Scaloni revealing the striker had been carrying a knock prior to the match, joking the Inter star appeared to play better injured.

"The change was planned, because he had some discomfort", the coach said. "Hopefully, we continue along this path".
