Messi scores two goals, Argentina thrash Hong Kong

Lionel Messi needed just six minutes to make his mark in Argentina’s 7-0 rout of Hong Kong in a friendly at Hong Kong Stadium, on Tuesday night.

Barcelona star Messi scored twice after going on as a substitute for the last 30 minutes of the game to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Hong Kong Football Association.

Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain and Benfica’s Nicolas Gaitan also scored two goals each after Sevilla’s Ever Banega had opened scoring in the 19th minute.

Argentina started the match with many of its stars, including Messi and English Premier League players Angel Di Maria, Sergio Aguero and Pablo Zabaleta all on the bench.
