An experimental Argentina side led by Angel Di Maria while injured captain Lionel Messi remained on the bench beat El Salvador 2-0 in a Copa America warm-up friendly on Saturday.

Midfielder Ever Banega breached the Salvadorean defence in the 54th minute when his shot took a deflection and looped over goalkeeper Derby Carrillo.

Substitute midfielder Federico Mancuello then brilliantly curled a free kick from a tight angle over Carrillo.
