There’ll be more on Argentina’s brilliant 4-1 friendly win over Spain during the day on Wednesday, but before I turn in for the night I’m going to post the highlights video here for those who want to relive a memorable win for all present in the Estadio Monumental. With excellent goals from Lionel Messi, Gonzalo Higuaín and Sergio Agüero, as well as a thoroughly determined one from Carlos Tevez, Argentina thrashed the new world champions with a display that might well ensure Sergio Batista is handed the permanent manager’s job. Spain’s starting lineup was nothing like the one forecast by the Spanish press (and, subsequently, me), but Argentina’s performance was highly impressive all the same. The goals are right here.
