Another dream came true. Another challenge was overcome by an Argentine National Team that does not set limits.
After becoming champions of the Copa América and obtaining their ticket to the Qatar World Cup, Scaloni’s team won a new title: with goals from Lautaro Martínez, Ángel Di María and Paulo Dybala, the Albiceleste won the Finalissima 3-0. to Italy.
The first approach was from the Italian team at 11′ of the game at the feet of Raspadori, with a weak shot that ended up in the hands of Martínez. Minutes later, it was Bernardeschi who found space behind the Argentine defense and almost managed to hurt with a sharp center back that Romero managed to close with just enough.
Argentina responded with a good collective play that culminated in Messi’s feet, well saved by the rival goalkeeper. However, Scaloni’s team continued to press and, after a good comeback with Italy at the start, Lionel invented a dribble, launched a cross from behind, and Lautaro Martínez pushed it in for the 1-0 set.
After the goal, the Albiceleste began to dominate the rhythm of the game and to be the protagonist with the ball until the end of the first half, when the second hit came: Lautaro Martínez received a long ball, won the position and perfectly enabled Ángel Di María , who made it 2-0 with an exquisite definition of his left foot.
The beginning of the second half also found Argentina planted in the rival field. An individual action by Di María forced Donnarumma to show off with a great save after a shot by Ángel near the top of the area. Moments later, the same duel was going to take place: shot of 11 and a new covered of 1.
The pressure of the Albiceleste did not stop. A quick recovery in attacking position left Messi in an ideal position for the center back, but Lo Celso was unable to complete the action at the far post.
With the passing of the minutes, the supremacy of the Scaloni team began to be total. Messi took charge of the attack and, were it not for Donnarumma on two occasions, the 10 would have stretched the lead.
At the end, Paulo Dybala, minutes after entering, captured a ball on the edge of the area and defined against the post to celebrate the third.
Wembley vibrated before thousands and thousands of throats that celebrated after the final whistle. Argentina champion, again. Argentina at the top. Argentina 3, Italy 0.
