When Lionel Scaloni took command of the Argentine National Team, one of his first decisions was to give Lautaro Martínez a preponderant place within his scheme, relegating at the time a historical one like Kun Agüero. Confidence that the Bull rewards with goals.

With a total of 16 goals over the 38 games led by Lionel Scaloni, the Inter striker is positioned as the top striker of the National Team and returns to the center forward a place that he had not had since the time of Hernán Crespo. 

On the other hand, and very close to Martínez, the captain of Argentina appears with 15 goals scored. Lionel Messi continues to consolidate himself as the player with the most goals in the history of the Argentine National Team while also providing the most assists.

In this way, between Lautaro Martínez and Lionel Messi they add a total of 31 goals out of the 70 that the "Scaloneta" has scored since August 10, 2018; a total of 44% of the total. A real madness.
