Lautaro on target for Argentina

Inter striker Lautaro Martinez scored two goals in Argentina’s 5-1 friendly win over Nicaragua last night.

They are warming up for the Copa America and Lautaro confirmed why he was included in the squad at the expense of Nerazzurri teammate Mauro Icardi.

The 21-year-old came off the bench in place of Sergio Aguero and promptly scored twice in just 10 minutes, both from corners.

“I am very happy to have scored with the Seleccion shirt again,” ‘El Toro’ told reporters, as he now has four goals in just seven senior caps.

“A striker lives to score goals, and unfortunately I haven’t managed as many at Inter as I’d like.”

Leo Messi also bagged a brace, with Roberto Pereyra of Watford scoring late on.
