Argentina 1-0 win over Brazil thanks to Messi goal
RIYADH – Lionel Messi returned from his international suspension only to score the winning goal in Argentina’s 1-0 victory over Brazil on Friday in Saudi Arabia.
The Barcelona striker missed four games after calling the South American Football Confederation “corrupt”. Messi scored after 14 minutes giving Argentina a much-deserved victory in the so-called Superclasico.
This result extended Brazil’s winless matches to five games since they last lifted the Copa America in July, their worst run since 2013.
