FULL TIME: Singapore 0-6 Argentina
- GoalÁngel Di MaríaArgentina
GOAL ARGENTINA! Di Maria gets his goal as Fernandez unselfishly rolls it across for him to slam home.
One last corner for Argentina. In it comes from Di Maria but well defended. That should just about be that…
- GoalLucas AlarioArgentina
GOAL ARGENTINA! And a lovely way to round things off as Alario latches onto a long ball to smash home.
Hilario gets the shot away at a tight angle but it’s smothered by Mahbud, who gets a boot to the face for good measure.
Another sub for Singapore as the 24-year-old Ramli comes on.
A lovely lay off from Di Maria in the box but Alario has his shot blocked at the last moment. Nice intricate interplay.
Actually no disgrace for Singapore tonight as they make another sub. Shafiq comes on for the closing moments.
Di Maria has been fun to watch this season in the absence of Messi. Seen a lot of the ball and provided many dangerous crosses. Great trickery of feet.
More good defending from Singapore, a dangerous ball from Di Maria headed clear. Dybala thwarted from a tight angle by keeper Mahbud.
Di Maria swings in another corner but a foul in the box from Fazio relieves some pressure for the Lions.
Ten minutes to play and I doubt the scoring is over yet. Argentina now all over the edge of the Singapore box, hunting a fifth.
Dybala drifts across goal and unleashes a shot that’s well blocked before Acuna fires well over the bar.
Clumsy challenge from Dybala on Baharudin but that’s all it was. No cards in this friendly match, unlike between Brazil and Argentina!
Such a lovely quickness of feet and movement from Paredes, turning Ishak inside out before shooting into the net. Class.
An excellent learning opportunity for a number of Singapore players and to take this into Asia Cup qualification.
A wonderful strike, guided into the side netting. My 5-0 bet is well and truly on…
- GoalLeandro ParedesArgentina
GOAL ARGENTINA! A lovely run and curling shot into the far corner from Paredes. Game, set, match. Had been for a while.
A quick water break here for the players in these humid evening conditions.
POST! Paredes lines up a shot from distance and it clatters back off the post with the sub keeper well beaten!
Fernandez comes on for the excellent Gomez. My man of the match for sure.
Mahbud comes off his line and flaps at a cross and is very fortunate to get away with it.
Difficult to judge this Argentina performance. Missing some key players, it has been comfortable. But it is against Singapore.
- OffShakir HamzahSingapore
- OnSafirul SulaimanSingapore
Hamzah replaced by Siulieman.
- OffKhairul NizamSingapore
- OnShahril IshakSingapore
Ishak on for Nizam for Singapore as Hamzah continues to receive treatment.
Another injury woe for Singapore, Hamzah clutching his back.
Singapore force a rare corner and get the crowd into this one. In it comes from Nizam but well cleared by Fazio.
16 goals and 10 assists in the Serie A for Gomez. Little wonder why. Great effort.
Absolutely no chance for the new keeper there. That really was a thunderous strike and he has been the standout player for Argentina tonight.
- GoalAlejandro GómezArgentina
GOAL ARGENTINA! And it’s a blockbusting strike from Gomez from just outside the box, rocketing low and hard into the back of the net.
- OffManuel LanziniArgentina
- OnLeandro ParedesArgentina
Paredes on for Lanzini for Argentina for his first international cap. A proud moment.
Still desperate defending from the Singapore Lions and they somehow scramble clear again.
- OffIrfan Fandi AhmadSingapore
- OnFahrudin MustaficSingapore
Mustafic making his 85th cap for his country, born in Yugoslavia.
Indeed he is coming off to be replaced by Mustafic.
A few decent touches from Singapore and they try and break forward. Another injury problem for them now though with Ahmad holding his hamstring.
Argentina pinging it around with menace. Gomez makes another great run but it’s a confidence building claim from Mahbud.
Dangerous ball from Di Maria and Alario can’t get enough on it. Should have scored.
Excellent run from deep from Gomez but can’t get his header on target. They need to make this new keeper work as soon as possible.
No muppet this Mahbud. Kept a clean sheet in a draw against Japan and was outstanding. This a different proposition, though.
- OffHassan SunnySingapore
- OnMohamad Izwan MahbudSingapore
Indeed Mahbud does come on for Sunny.
Worrying times for Singapore with Sunny holding his groin. He’s been on good form tonight.
Argentina starting as they ended the first half. With possession deep in the Singapore half. Lanzini opens up his body and places a shot just wide.
- OffJoaquin CorreaArgentina
- OnLucas AlarioArgentina
SUB: Alario on for Brazil in place of Correa. Biglia also off.
- OffLucas BigliaArgentina
- OnÉver BanegaArgentina
Back underway here in Singapore. Can the hosts turn this around? Well, no. How many will Argentina score? I reckon five.
- End of 1st Half
HALF TIME: Singapore 0 Argentina 2
A great cross from Di Maria but Acuna can’t get enough power on the header. Just one added minute.
Hardly and stoppages in play so unlikely to be any added time here. Singapore disciplined not to commit fouls.
Huge cheers as Hamzah overhits an attempted cross that almost catches Guzman out but the keeper back pedals and claims it.
Gomez whips in a cross but it’s a poor one this time, drifting harmlessly behind for a goal kick.
Argentina doing well defensively, pressing Singapore and winning the ball back quickly whenever the hosts win possession and look to go long.
Singapore living dangerously playing a very high line. Gomez drops the shoulder but shoots straight at Sunny and this time it’s an easy save.
Argentina so accurate with that switch of play with the diagonal ball. It’s men against boys. A lovely ball over the top but Sunny out really well to claim ahead of Correa.
I don’t think Singapore would be too disappointed if they were only two behind at the break despite the softness of the goals. Dybala lets fly, well over the bar.
Salvio’s cut back is good, driven in low but the Singapore defence well positioned to deal with the resultant shot.
Now Lanzini ripples the side netting with a shot from distance. Just dragged it slightly.
Another excellent save from Sunny with his legs to prevent Argentina going further ahead. It could be a landslide now.
Singapore seem to be at sixes and sevens at the set piece. Incredibly frustrating.
- GoalJoaquin CorreaArgentina
GOAL ARGENTINA! And it’s another from the corner, Dybala drilling the ball across for Correa to slot home.
Nizam does very well, a lovely little piece of skill well appreciated from the crowd. Di Maria shoots on goal and deflected behind for a corner.
They enjoyed that one.
That should never have been allowed to happen. Dreadful defending from the set piece and now they must regroup quickly as Argentina can relax a little.
Frustrating ill discipline from the set piece after all that hard work. Fazio drifted in unopposed and passed it into the net.
- GoalFederico FazioArgentina
GOAL ARGENTINA! Gomez swings in the corner and Fazio flicks home his first international goal.
SAVE! Still that red wall holding Argentina out. Lanzini shoots on goal and Sunny palms it wide for a corner.
Credit to Singapore at the moment, very disciplined in defence. You feel that should Argentina break through, the floodgates may open.
Correa with another effort on the edge of the box but he doesn’t force Sunny into a save.
Singapore have got to the 20 minute mark without conceding so that’s the first mini victory.
CHANCE! A superb delivery from Di Maria is missed by Correa. He should have got something on that.
That was a good delivery into the box and a better chance than perhaps the captain expected. Shows they can be dangerous.
CHANCE! Singapore with a spell in the Argentina half and appreciated by the fans. They force a rare corner. In it comes and headed wide by the skipper Harun.
Singapore maintaining their discipline in defence and making life difficult. Correa almost in again but from some good last ditch defending.
SAVE! Di Maria stings the palms of Sunny from about 25 yards out. A venomous strike and well saved.
Singapore sitting deep and absorbing a lot of pressure. When they do get the ball they tend to panic and give it away too easily.
Good spell of possession from Argentina. All very easy at the moment but we still await an opening goal.
A lovely first touch and Di Maria goes down in the box. Looked like he went down very easily. Not really necessary against Singapore!
Sunny quickly off his line again to grab the ball ahead of Correa. The keeper has started well. He’ll be busy tonight.
Argentina face Uruguay in Montevideo in their next World Cup qualifier. It’s a must win really otherwise they face a play-off. So quite important practice tonight.
Great tackle from Harun on Dybala, who was in on goal.
Sunny does really well to charge out and anticipate a dangerous ball in behind but the flag was up anyway.
Argentina with all of the possession as expected against the red defensive Singapore wall. Another save from Sunny from Acuna’s shot.
Argentina force the first corner of the match. In it comes and Correa’s header spectacularly saved by Sunny when it was actually an easy grab!
The crowd really loving this, making a lot of noise. Di Maria swings in a cross and it’s a confident grab from Sunny in goal.
Argentina giving the ball away uncharacteristically early on with Salvio caught out. It’s a back three for the visitors.
Four at the back for Singapore, not many at the back for Argentina! Nizam with an early run through the middle but quickly bundled out of it.
KICK-OFF! Referee Hiroyuki Kimura blows the whistle to get us underway here in Singapore. How long can the hosts hold out?
FIVE MINUTES TO KICK-OFF: The teams are in the tunnel and making their way out onto the pitch. Expecting goals tonight. Lots of goals!
Here's another look at the two teams with ten minutes to go before kick-off.
Singapore: Sunny, Hamzah, Hameed, Bennett, Fandi, Nazari, Harun, Baharudin, Nizam, Arifin, Sujad.
Argentina: Guzman, Fazio, Mammana, Acuna, Biglia, Salvio, Gomez, Lanzini, Dybala, Di Maria, Correa.
This will be the first meeting between the two sides, Singapore coming off the back of a humbling Asia Cup loss against Chinese Taipei. Singapore have not won in their last five matches, losing three.
Jorge Sampaoli: "Higuain and Messi came after a lot of games, and that was why it was risky to have them now. We have to analyse this tour very well to define who will be the next to join the group. This is a game that gives us the opportunity to continue preparing ourselves and hopefully we can take advantage of it. We are in a stage of preparation and we will continue working to reach the qualifiers in the best possible way."
Both team line ups are now in.
And here is that Argentina side. Remember, no Lionel Messi or Higuain for fans to enjoy today.
