Commentary

Minute   Description
90' +5 There is the final whistle! Sampaoli's Argentina reign begins with a win over their arch rivals.
90' +4 M. Acuña enters the game and replaces Á. Di María.
The free-kick is headed away by Gil, and that will surely be that.
90' +3 Argentina try to wind the clock down and Coutinho trips Messi over. That'll be a free-kick for Sampaoli's side.
90' +2 Taison enters the game and replaces Gabriel Jesus.
Jesus is carried off on the stretcher to warm applause from the crowd. Taison takes his place.
90' +1 There will be a minimum of three added minutes. Taison is stood on the sidelines waiting to come on, the chances are it will be for Jesus.
90' Maybe it was painful for Jesus, he's still down receiving treatment and the referee has called for the stretcher.
88' Jesus goes down with a yelp after Otamendi clambers over the back of him to win a header. There didn't seem to be much in it, but the referee stops play with suggestions it could be a head injury.
86' Brazil are giving away too many cheap free-kicks as their evident frustrations mount. Jesus is whistled for tripping Banega, but Argentina fail to hold onto possession. They look set to invite pressure in the closing minutes.
84' That was a pretty poor decision from Costa! Brazil work the ball from right to left and the Bayern Munich winger goes for goal from a difficult angle rather than cross. His shot flies over, with Romero happy to watch it fly behind.
83' Time is running out for Brazil to find an equaliser. They need to get the ball to Willian and Costa, who have the pace that can trouble this Argentina defence.
