Argentina vs Mexico international friendly ended 4-0 in favour of Albiceleste as Lautaro Martinez grabbed a hat-trick.
The blue and white were without their inspirational captain Lionel Messi but that did not in any way affect Lionel Scaloni's men.
And the Seleccion got their noses in front in the 17th minute through Inter Milan striker Lautaro as he wriggled his way past three defenders to score his side's opening goal.

Lautaro was even more clinical in the second half as he timed his run to perfection to beat the offside trap from an Exequiel Palacios' through ball to make it 2-0 five minutes later.
It was a one-show as the Inter Milan striker again won a penalty for his side after Carlos Salcedo handled Lautaro's looping cross.

And Lautaro completed his hat-trick with 39 minutes on the clock as he took advantage of sloppy defending from the Mexican defence and powered the ball past Guillermo Ochoa in goal.
There were no further goals in the second half as Argentina continued their dominant streak over the north American nation.
