Warm-up win helps Maradona

Argentina showed no mercy against Haiti as Diego Maradona's side claimed a 4-0 victory in one of their final warm-up matches before next month's World Cup.

Argentina fielded a home-based team as it was not a date FIFA had set for international duty, and the players boosted their chances of making the 30-man preliminary squad to be named on May 11.

Maradona (right) said: "The guys got my message very well. I told them all of them had one chance and they knew to profit from it. There were high peaks in form. I liked several players. I got into this match looking for some men (for the squad). I got some."

Argentina's goals came from Facundo Bertoglio (2), Martin Palermo and Sebastian Blanco.
