The football match between Brazil 0-1 Argentina. Sampaoli fielded an attacking XI in his first game as Argentina boss, including Messi, Higuain, Dybala and Angel Di Maria. Brazil, meanwhile, were without star attacker Neymar Jr, but Tite did name Gabriel Jesus, Willian and Philippe Coutinho in his line-up.
Jorge Sampaoli’s Argentina reign began with a win as Gabriel Mercado’s goal secured a 1-0 victory over Brazil on Friday at Melbourne Cricket Ground, Australia.
After a very important last minute goal before half-time from Argentina by Gabriel Mercado, the final result of the game is Brazil 0-1 Argentina.
