Argentina absolutely dominated in their World Cup warm-up against the United Arab Emirates at the Mohammed bin Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi.

The Albiceleste opened the scoring after just 17 minutes with Manchester City star Julian Alvarez during a counter-attack that saw Lionel Messi setting the striker up in front of Khalid Eisa.

The visitors doubled their lead just eight minutes later with Angel Di Marias stunner.

Argentina appeared to have put the game to bed in the 36th minute when Brightons Alexis Mac Allister set Di Maria up inside the area and the winger dribbled past a UAE defender and the goalkeeper to score a brace.

Messi netted the fourth with a clinical shot just one minute before half-time after a beautiful through ball by Di Maria.

And Joaquin Correa scored Argentinas fifth in the hour-mark after a fine through ball by Rodrigo de Paul.
