No Messi, no problem as Argentina down Peru at Copa America

MIAMI: Argentina shrugged off an injury to Lionel Messi to maintain their perfect start to the Copa America with a 2-0 win over Peru in Miami on Saturday. Lautaro Martinez scored twice at the Hard Rock Stadium to seal a victory that sent Argentina through to the quarter-finals as Group A winners. With Messi ruled out after complaining of right hamstring pain and coach Lionel Scaloni serving a one-match suspension, Argentina made nine changes to their starting line-up at the Hard Rock Stadium.
