Lionel Messi, who scored the opener on a beauty of his own from outside the box, provided the assist with a pass to Fernández on the right corner of the penalty box, and some nifty footwork from the Benfica rising star gave him the confidence to curl it in.

Fernández had come in off the bench in the 57th minute for Guido Rodriguez to give Argentina an extra boost going forward with his box-to-box abilities, and it proved to pay off for manager Lionel Scaloni.

Next for Argentina is a huge game against Poland on Wednesday, with a win for La Albiceleste putting them in potential position for first place in the group after shockingly losing their opener to Saudi Arabia.
