  • Argentina wins at FedEx Field without Messi

    Argentina wins at FedEx Field without Messi
    Ever Banega scored on a deflected shot, Federico Mancuello added a late goal and Argentina beat El Salvador, 2-0, in a friendly Saturday at FedEx Field in Landover. Argentina played a lackluster game without star Lionel Messi, who stayed on the bench with a bruised right foot. The Barcelona star was injured last Sunday in the Spanish League "Clasico" against Real Madrid, and missed several training sessions last week with the national team. Messi underwent tests Tuesday, which revealed no serious injury. Banega scored with a 54th-minute shot that deflected off defender Nestor Renderos and beat goalkeeper Derby Carrillo. Mancuello sealed the win with a free kick from a tight angle in the 88th minute. Argentina coach Gerardo Martino started Carlos Tevez for the first time since taking over the team last year, but the Juventus forward was ineffective in attack with Gonzalo Higuain and Angel Di Maria. Argentina faces Ecuador on Tuesday in the Meadowlands, in its last warmup match before Copa America in June.
