Messi (13')


Lionel Messi scored on his first Argentina appearance since July as they beat old rivals Brazil in Saudi Arabia.

Messi had a penalty saved by Alisson in the friendly, but scored the rebound for his 69th international goal.

Gabriel Jesus had earlier missed a penalty for Brazil.

Barcelona forward Messi was returning from a three-month ban for saying the Copa America was "fixed for Brazil", with the hosts beating Argentina in the semi-final and Peru in the July final.

Brazil - who handed a late debut to Aston Villa striker Wesley - have failed to win in the five games since winning the Copa America.

Argentina are due to face Uruguay in Tel Aviv on Monday (19:15 GMT) but the game could be cancelled due to fighting in Israel.
