As we enter another thrilling weekend of Premier League action, we have one final round of international yesterday match results to report on. The matches were not particularly exciting on April Fool’s Day, but we did have an intriguing South American matchup between Argentina and Ecuador.

With many Argentina squad members set to fly back to their club teams on Thursday morning, you would have been forgiven for thinking that star players would be rested. However, that was far from the case. Argentina lined up with the likes of Sergio Agüero, Ángel Di María, Javier Pastore, and Javier Mascherano. Argentina absolutely wanted to beat Ecuador.

All looked good for Argentina when Agüero opened the scoring after just eight minutes of play. But the lead only last until Miller Bolaños scored for Ecuador in the 24th minute. Argentina then had to wait until the 58th minute for their winning goal from Pastore.
