Angel Di Maria’s first-half finish secured an easy 1-0 win for Argentina in a Copa America warm-up match against Ecuador.

Di Maria scored five minutes before the break in Chicago on Sunday, capping off a fine team move, with Lionel Messi sitting out as Lionel Scaloni aims to manage his minutes before the tournament.

Argentina, the reigning Copa America champions, were rarely threatened in defence, though without Messi, struggled to add to their lead.

La Albiceleste face Guatemala in a final warm-up match ahead of their title defence.

“It was a deserved win. We have to keep working as we always do and stay as united,” Di Maria said.

“Ecuador are an opponent we could meet in the Copa. We know it’s going to be a very difficult tournament. Today was a good game to show what we can do.”
