Cristian Ansaldi, Gabriel Mercado, Federico Fazio, Marcos Acuna, Paulo Dybala, Enzo Perez, Giovanni Lo Celso, Cristian Pavon and Gonzalo Higuain all got a workout, though, as did the goalkeepers. Argentina have only played one warm-up game in the build-up to Russia 2018 - a 4-0 win over Haiti. (Video Courtesy: SNTV)
