Argentina now has 28 points and just needs one more win to qualify for the World Cup in 2022.

There were concerns that Argentina would struggle to achieve a significant result in Montevideo without Lionel Messi in the starting XI (he would come on in the 76th minute).

Angel Di Mara, on the other hand, just took seven minutes to unleash a stunning curling effort into the top corner.

Paulo Dybala did a great job forcing a turnover deep in the offensive third before setting up Di Mara.

Argentina will face Brazil at the Estadio del Bicentenario on Tuesday night for a chance to win their place in the tournament.
