Doubles from Lionel Messi and Lautaro Martinez secured Argentina's 4-1 win over Guatemala in their final Copa America preparation match on Friday. Guatemala took an early lead with their first-ever goal against the World Cup champions, thanks to Lisandro Martinez's own goal from a set-piece just four minutes into the match. Lionel Messi leveled the score eight minutes later when keeper Nicholas Hagen's clearance landed straight at the Argentine captain's feet, allowing him to score into an unguarded net. Lautaro Martinez, the Serie A's top scorer this season, gave Argentina the lead with a penalty in the 39th minute and then scored his second goal from a Messi assist after halftime. "We are targeting the title, we are battling for everything," Martinez told TyC Sports. "We declared this after the 2021 Copa America and the World Cup, we aim to prepare optimally for the Copa America and hopefully, it will be full of joy." Messi, aged 36, completed his brace in the 77th minute following a brilliant pass from substitute Angel Di Maria, sealing the victory for the reigning Copa America champions. The tournament runs from June 20 to July 14 in the United States. Argentina, coached by Lionel Scaloni, begins their Group A journey against Canada on Thursday, followed by matches against Chile on June 25 and Peru four days later. "We will continue striving to perform our best, we remain eager to win more titles," Messi stated. "The matches are becoming more challenging, defending the Copa title is tough, but we will endeavor again."
