Last night Isco scored a hat trick and along with him Diego Costa, Thiago, and Iago Aspas were on the target for Spain and won the friendly match with flying colors against the La Albiceleste, the Argentine defender Nicolas Otamendi scored the solitary goal for Argentina.
For the Russia world cup, along with the last year’s Champions Germany, France, and Brazil, Spain are the bookmakers to win the silverware, but the Spanish captain Sergio Ramos voiced some a note of wary.
Ramos voiced: "We have to be calm because we haven't won anything yet,"
"But logically it is the best way to get [to] the World Cup, with these good feelings.
"For us these games are not friendlies at all and everyone could see this in every [passage of] play and in the result.
"We have to keep this ambition but without being arrogant. We have a World Cup coming and we do want to play a very important role."
Last night Messi missed the game for Argentina as he is suffering from a hamstring injury and Ramos knows that Sampaoli’s best men were not on the field last night.
He added: "Everyone in football knows who Messi is,"
"He is a unique player in the world and he shows it in every game, not only with Barca but with his national team.
"He was a very important absentee and, obviously, Argentina lost a very important percentage of [their potential] level.
"But they did not want to [suffer] the defeat that easily… the second half, due to the result, makes this game be understood differently but [in] the first half it was very level, because Argentina fought a lot."
