Final score is Italy 0-3 Argentina.

With two assists from Messi and Di Maria, Martinez and Dybala all finding the net

Lionel Messi was crowned Man of the Match for his performance against

The Albiceleste deservedly win the Finalissima trophy, and send a warning to the rest of the world with the Qatar World Cup only months away. They’re playing like a well-oiled machine, and will only become harder to stop with each passing game. Italy, however, farewelled Chiellini in this match too, signalling a changing of the guard with a new generation of Azzurri prospects set to be let loose in the upcoming UEFA Nations League.
Messi was simply unplayable throughout this game, and was denied on several occasions by gravity-defying Donnarumma saves. The Albiceleste captain set up the first and last goals, and carried on his rich vein of form by having 10 attempts, many of which came following dribbling runs that also defied the laws of physics. Magic.
What a performance from Argentina, as they run out deserved winners of La Finalissima! A second half performance that will send shivers down the spines of every other nation in world football was capped off by that late Dybala goal, set up of course by Messi. The magician in number 10 was in vintage form, rolling back the years and inspiring his side to victory, and with performances like that, who’s to say he won’t do the same in Qatar later this year
