Football Results: Italy 0-3 Argentina

Lionel Messi was the star of the show as Argentina produced one of the most comfortable football results in the Finalissima at Wembley. Lautaro Martinez opened the scoring in the 28th minute before Angel Di Maria doubled their advantage in the first minute of stoppage time. Paulo Dybala sealed the win in second-half stoppage time. For Italy, it was an unhappy return to the scene of their Euro 2020 triumph over England last summer.

Man of the match: Lionel Messi.

Lionel Messi produced assists for both first-half goals. He set the tone in the match between the winners of the Copa America and European Championships. It was a surprisingly one-sided affair as the Argentinan star controlled the pace of the game in front of a packed stadium. The tournament was a reincarnation of the Artemio Franchi Cup which was last held in 1993. Diego Maradona lifted the trophy almost 30 years ago as they beat Denmark in a penalty shootout. The inaugural edition was held in 1985 when France beat Uruguay.
