Lionel Messi took on his usual role as the star of the show, scoring a hat-trick and setting up the fourth for Sergio Aguero, who came off the bench to combine with the Barcelona striker and Christian Pavon, another second half substitute.
While it is not a black mark against the name of arguably the greatest footballer in history, Messi, 30, will always be unfavourably compared to Diego Maradona once the World Cup rolls around every four years.
"We have good players and we are getting stronger to fight as an equal with anyone".
But, as brilliant as he may be, even the Barcelona talisman can not carry Argentinian hopes all on his shoulders without help from his supporting cast if they are to lift the World Cup trophy on July 15.
But he said: "From a sporting point of view, I would have preferred to play in Barcelona".
Sporadic links to Manchester City have for some time seemed unlikely to come to fruition but Messi has previously spoken of finishing his career with Newell's Old Boys in his native Rosario.
It would be at Newell's, nowhere else. "I'd like to do that for at least six months, but you never know what is going to happen".

Thankfully, it will be available on myriad platforms in order to offer practically everyone the chance to play it at launch. It'll be a robo-tastic time when Mega Man 11 debuts this October for consoles and PC.
On Group D, Messi added: "Iceland are a team that showed in the last European Championship that they are hard for anyone".
Iceland, he said, "compete with anybody" pointing to their surprising run at Euro 2016.
Quoted by the BBC, he said: "We're not going as favourites but will give it our all".
Jorge Sampaoli's men won just once in eight qualifiers without him and lost to both Nigeria (4-2) and Spain (6-1) in pre-tournament friendlies with the Barcelona forward sidelined.
The Guardian reports that VAR will be used for the first time at a World Cup this summer.
"Croatia have a midfield that plays very well, it is a style like Spain but one level below, and Nigeria always challenge us". "We don't have an easy group". Argentina found that out in November, when the Super Eagles came back from 2-0 down to beat them, 4-2, in a friendly in Russian Federation.
