South American champions Argentina opened their Tahiti 2013 campaign with a comfortable 4-1 win over El Salvador.
Two quick goals in the opening period had Argentina on their way and in truth they never looked like being pegged back.
Notably Cesar Leguizamon opened the scoring on three minutes with a textbook bicycle kick, while Federico Hilaire extended his record Argentinian goal tally to 17 soon after.
There was a goal for each team in the second period, including Elmer Robles netting El Salvador’s first of the tournament.
However, the game was virtually put out of reach early in the third period with Lucas Medero scoring with a sweet long-range strike to make it 4-1.
It was an impressive and confident opening for the Argentinians who proved themselves to be well-structured and tactically astute.
