Disastrous debut of Argentina on the way to qualify for the 2018 World Cup in Russia. The combo led by Tata Martino fell in Buenos Aires 0-2 against Ecuador, which got the first victory in Argentine territory in history. In addition, Argentina had not lost in the Monumental in Buenos Aires in the last 22 years.

The absence of Messi became obvious as the team missed the real leader of the albiceleste. Without Barcelona's star, Argentina is a vulgar team, as seen in the defeat against a not really powerful Ecuador.

Javier Mascherano played 90 minutes. In addition, Argentina has suffered the loss of Agüero after 20 minutes for muscle problems. The goals of Ecuador came in the last 10 minutes.
