Inter striker Lautaro Martinez has become the first Argentina player to score three goals against Mexico since 1930.
Martinez took just 16 minutes to bag a first-half hat-trick as Argentina thrashed Mexico 4-0 on Tuesday evening.
With that, the 22-year-old made history as the first player to accomplish such a feat since since former Napoli and Genoa attacker Guillermo Stabile in 1930.
However, he was replaced by Juventus forward Paulo Dybala at half-time.
“We’d already planned to take him off at half-time,” CT Lionel Scaloni told TyC Sports after the game.
“It wasn’t fair, but he came here with a slight knock. I hope he always has problems!"
Lautaro has now netted nine times in 13 caps for the Albiceleste, while beginning the season for Inter in a front two with Romelu Lukaku.
