In its 2-1 win versus defending champions Chile, Argentina received goals from Ángel Di María and Éver Banega and it should be just a matter of time before we start seeing goals from the likes of Gonzalo Higuain or Sergio Aguero.

Argentina has finished second in three of the last four Copa tourneys and will be eager to get back to the winners’ podium in the USA this summer and a strong showing versus Panama Friday will keep them on the right track.
