Lionel Messi denoted his 100th worldwide win with two goals as Argentina serenely beat Jamaica in a friendly on Tuesday.
The win also stretched out Argentina’s unbeaten streak to 35 matches, which is two behind Italy’s current record of 37.
Manchester City striker Julian Alvarez put Lionel Scaloni’s side in front, with the assist coming from Lautaro Martinez.
Messi, 35, was introduced after 56 minutes prior to stroking in a shot and twisting in a free-kick late on.
The Paris St-Germain forward’s brace – on the back of scoring twice in a recent success against Honduras – took his count to 90 goals in a record 164 appearances for his country.
The game in New Jersey was Argentina’s last before the World Cup.
The double World Cup champions, who are among the top choices during the current year’s competition, open their mission in Qatar against Saudi Arabia on 22 November.
