Argentina beat Chile away in the absence of Messi
With the position of the top team, Argentina scored the opening goal right when the audience at the Zorros del Desierto stadium could not sit warm. In the 9th minute, receiving a pass from Rodrigo De Paul in the right wing, Angel Di Maria calmly dribbled the ball a few more beats.
After that, the captain wearing the number 11 shirt calmly adjusted the ball, corrected the angle of the shot and launched a sharp cut. Di Maria drew a beautiful curve, causing the ball to go with an extremely dangerous trajectory, not giving Claudio Bravo any chance to block.
