Brazil v Argentina - as it happened

Join us for live coverage of the annual friendly between Brazil and Argentina in Saudi Arabia, which could see Leo Messi make his international return. Who will come away victorious in this battle between the two South American giants?

Full time! An early goal from Leo Messi saw Argentina go away with the win. This was a game of very few shots and very few chances of real quality. Brazil did not perform up to standard and although the had a lot of the ball, they could not do anything with it. Very poor from Brazil and very good on and off the ball for Argentina. Final score Brazil 0-1 Argentina!
5 minutes added time!
Corner for Brazil, one of their last chances in the game! Another corner as that ball is cleared out and Martinez recieves treatment after a clash of heads with Thiago Silva!
Argentina change, as Dominguez comes on for De Paul
Another sub, this time for Argentina, as Lautaro Martinez comes off for Alario!
Brazil change, as Wesley comes on for Casemiro as Brazil look for a late goal!
Argentina get another corner after Casemiro blocks Rodriguez's shot. The corner is cleared out of the box, but goes straight to Messi, who puts the ball in for Otamendi, but he just cannot get there on time
Another change for Argentina as Paredes is replaced by Rodriguez
Argentina corner as Acuna's shot is cleared off. Lautaro receives the ball in the area, but skies the ball well over the bar!!
Casemiro has a shot from distance this time and Alisson is forced into making a great save to stop the powerful ball from going in the top corner. Corner for Argentina
Gonzalez impacts the game straight away, as the ball is crossed in the box and he comes from nowhere to try to head it in the net, but Alisson denies him the goal!
Argentina's second change as Gonzalez comes on for Ocampos
Another yellow card!! This time it's for Paredes. That is 3 yellow cards for each team now.
Double change for Brazil as Gabriel Jesus comes off for Richarlison and Willian is replaced by Rodrygo!
Another free kick sees Messi have another powerful shot at goal, but Alisson is there to calmly catch the ball and stop Messi from doubling the lead
Brazil are keeping hold of the ball really well at the moment, but they aren't doing much with it. They look comfortable in possession but without really causing Argentina any real problems.
Messi takes the free kick and goes straight for goal from 30 yards out, but Alisson just manages to get a hand to it to tap it over the bar for a corner!
Militao gets a yellow for colliding with Messi! A lot of yellow cards in this game
Alex Sandro is the latest change for Brazil and Reman Lodi is his replacement
Tagliafico goes into the book for a clear foul from behind on Willian!
Danilo has a shot from about 30-yards out, but it goes just wide of the near post!
First change for Argentina as Lo Celsa comes off and Acuna comes on for him
Brazil have a free kick after Fabinho is downed, is is on the left-hand side. Coutinho takes, but it comes to nothing and is cleared for a corner! Coutinho came on for Paqueta at half time!
Arthur comes off for Brazil and Fabinho is his replacement!
Otamendi is down after a challenge with Willian, as he seems to fall badly on his shoulder. He is receiving treatment now
Silva plays a sloppy forward pass from the edge of his own box and ends up giving it straight to Ocampos. He makes a good run down the right, but his cross lets him down as Militao gets across to clear it.
The second half is underway! Can Brazil get something out of this game?
Half time sees Argentina lead by one goal, thanks to a goal from Leo Messi! Brazil tried to come back into to the game but Argentina have been too strong so far. An exciting second half to come!
Messi makes a run down the pitch with the ball, as he is slowly closed down by the Brazil defence and so he has a shot from the edge of the box, but Alisson is there and is able to save it
The first yellow for Argentina as De Paul goes in on Casemiro from behind and brings him down. It is not the first foul he has committed. Free kick for Brazil
Casemiro does really well to win the ball back from Messi before making a driving run towards the box. He tries to pick out Firmino with a throughball but ends playing it behind him and the chance goes to waste.
Danilo has a shot from the right, as Brazil look a little more dynamic now, but Andrada just manages to get a hand on it and stop Brazil from equalising!
Argentina have a corner after more dangerous play. It's a sloppy pass from Silva that gives the ball to Messi on the edge of Brazil's box and he takes the shot first time. He's quickly closed down though and it takes a deflection off Militao.. Argentina looking dangerous!
Firmino has a shot after a great ball in from Willian on the left hand side, but his shot goes well wide!
Second yellow for Brazil as he seems to go in on Lo Celso's foot and brings him to the ground!
Casemiro needs to be careful now he is on a yellow, but he has just committed another foul and given away another free kick!
Messi took the free kick and aimed for goal, but it went wide, for a goal kick to Brazil
A clear yellow for Casemiro as he fouls De Paul! Free kick just outside the box!
Corner for Argentina as they look to double their lead!
Messi took the penalty and Alisson manages to save it, as it is aimed right at him, but Messi is there for the deflection and slots it in the back of the net before anybody can stop him! 0-1 Argentina!
Now there is a penalty at the other end as Messi goes down in the box due to a foul from Alex Sandro, as he clumsily catches Messi from behind
How did he miss that?? Gabriel Jesus tried to trick the keeper with a slow ball to the bottom corner, the keeper dives the wrong way, but the ball goes wide anyway! Wasted chance for Brazil!!
Gabriel Jesus goes down in the box after a lot of good play from Brazil in their attacking end and a penalty is given. Pezzella is the one who gives the penalty away. Jesus to take!
Chance for Brazil as they start to look threatening! Gabriel Jesus has a low shot from the edge of the box, but it is aimed right at the keeper and doesn't have much power, so Andrada can easily get to it.
Free kick for Argentina after Gabriel Jesus runs into Tagliafico
