Emi Martínez and Argentina opened the defence of their Copa América crown with a 2-0 victory over Canada in the early hours of Friday morning.

The Aston Villa goalkeeper completed 90 minutes of the tournament opener in Atlanta and kept yet another clean sheet, his 12th shutout in his last 14 matches for his nation.

La Albiceleste triumphed courtesy of second-half goals from Julian Alvarez and Lautaro Martinez.

Reigning world champions Argentina are now nine matches unbeaten at the Copa América having won the tournament in 2021.

Martínez will now turn his attention towards Wednesday’s second Group A clash against Chile in New Jersey (ko 2am).
