Simeone scores on Argentina debut

Giovanni Simeone scored against Guatemala on his debut for the Argentinian national team. The Fiorentina strikers added his side’s third goal on the stroke of half time. The 23-year-old signed for La Viola from Genoa in 2017 and managed to score 14 Serie A goals last season.

Argentina took the lead  thanks to Gonzalo Martinez’s penalty just before the half-hour mark before Giovani Lo Celso added his side’s second in the 35th minute.

Lionel Scaloni was put in charge of Argentina on a temporary basis after Jorge Sampaoli was dismissed following the South Americans’ exit to France at this year’s World Cup.
