Far from producing their brightest performance during the 2026 World Cup qualifiers, Argentina got the job done with a 1-0 win against Brazil thanks to Nicolas Otamendi’s (63rd) goal. A success that allows Auriverdes to consolidate their top spot and drop their opponent of the night to eight lengths.
Little in sight in this match, the Argentine captain Lionel Messi prefers to keep positive with this precious win. “This group continues to achieve historic things. Although today was not the most important thing, it was something very pleasant” he stated after the meeting.
