Argentina coach Gerardo Martino vowed not to risk Lionel Messi in Tuesday night's friendly against Ecuador in New Jersey as the Barcelona forward continues his recovery from foot injury.

Having handed a number of fringe players the chance to impress ahead of this summer's Copa America in Saturday's 2-0 win over El Salvador, Martino is expected to field a strong line-up against Ecuador.

However, Messi remains doubtful due to the foot injury that kept him on the bench throughout the weekend game in Washington.

Ecuador friendly reveals the flaws in Mexico's ambitious side

It was Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez's goal and Jose de Jesus Corona's penalty save that saw Mexico past Ecuador in an end-to-end thriller of an international friendly.

I may have been too foolish with my aspirations for El Tri on Saturday night. My prediction for the match was a 3-1 win for Mexico over Ecuador, which I was honestly second-guessing, thinking that perhaps 4-1 would be more appropriate.

That's the problem with hopes and dreams, nobody ever fantasizes about something realistic, it's always a bit outlandish.

If you ask any Mexico fan about their predictions for Saturday's game, I highly doubt most would have gone for a narrow and conservative 1-0...

Chicharito Hernandez and Jesus Corona lead Mexico over Ecuador

Mexico's Javier 'Chicharito' Hernandez spoke to ESPN FC's John Sutcliffe following his side's international friendly win over Ecuador, and noted the importance of team development in these types of matches.

Mexico head coach Miguel Herrera will no doubt be encouraged in general by what he observed in Mexico's 1-0 friendly victory over Ecuador in Los Angeles, but there are some elements that will remind him there is still much for the team to improve.

With two tournaments coming up that require different rosters in short order, though, Herrera has some tough choices to make. Others should be easier. Here are three things to take away from the Ecuador game.
