VIDEO: Watch highlights of Argentina beating Jamaica

Gerardo Martino’s side secured their place as Group B winners with a comfortable 1-0 victory over the Caribbean nation on Saturday

Gonzalo Higuain replaced the rested Sergio Aguero for Argentina and got them off to the perfect start when he swivelled to fire the 14-time Copa America champions into an 11th minute lead.

Lionel Messi, making his 100th appearance for his country, led wave after wave of attack but his side were unable to build on their early lead and slowed in the second half.

A late rally for Jamaica threatened to force a shock draw, but Argentina hung on to progress as group winners.
