Argentina 1-0 Brazil: Messi Magic Gives The Albiceleste Last-Minute Victory

A last-minute wonder goal by Lionel Messi stole a tight encounter for Argentina over South American rivals Brazil, when a surprisingly low-key game appeared destined for a draw. The Barcelona talisman scored with a typically mazy run and driven shot, to give Sergio Batista a great scalp in his first match since being confirmed as Diego Maradona's successor.

The story is too old to be commented.

Is this the Resurrection from messi in the Argentina squad? Is this a confermation that Maradona is not a good coach? :)

Hehe. Funny. But I`m looking forward to follow Argentina and Batista the next matches. I think he will make it real good. Maybe World champions in Brazil WC 2014? That had been great:-)...and spesial....

Yes Maradonna isn't a good coach but Messi still hasn't peaked for Argentina

Yes, looking forward to se what Batista can do with this team. Maradona got, in my opinion, too little out of all the player profiles he had available.

Mardona did not choose any good defenders for the world cup that was the main reason for their terrible performance
