Argentina set new unbeaten run record with Italy win

Finalissima - Italy v Argentina

Argentina’s 3-0 Finalissima win over Italy saw La Albiceleste set a new 32-match unbeaten streak.

The Lionel Scaloni men were amazed at Wembley, doing an outstanding and vibrant job that could see them wanting to win on one side even more.

Lautaro Martinez, Angel Di Maria, and Paulo Dybala scored, while Lionel Messi pulled the trigger as Argentina made some statement less than six months before the World Cup.

Argentina last lost 2-0 to arch-rivals Brazil in the 2019 Copa America semi-finals, but retaliated in last year’s final, beating Selecao 1-0 in Maracana to win their first 28-year title.

Their 32 unbeaten games are a new official match record, although Argentina have played 33 unbeaten games under Alfio Basile – those games include two unknown FIFA matches as they face the rest of America and the World in 1991.

Argentina’s round is currently the longest in international football and leaves them five times behind Italy’s own record last year.
