Sergio Aguero and Javier Pastore scored in each half and Argentina defeated Ecuador 2-1 in a friendly match Tuesday. In a lively game under snowy conditions at the start, Argentina managed to get another win in its round of tuneups in the United States ahead of the Copa America in June. The Barcelona star took a knock in the Spanish league 'clasico' against Real Madrid, just prior to the international matches and missed several training sessions this week with the national team.

Josef Martinez scored in the 60th minute to give Venezuela a 1-0 victory over Peru in an exhibition Tuesday night. Martinez, a striker with Italian Serie A club Torino, took a pass from Salomon Rondon, dribbled toward the right side of the Peru penalty area and sent a low shot that eluded Peru goalkeeper Pedro Gallese and rolled inside the far post. Christian Cueva had Peru's best opportunity at the tying score in the 82nd minute but Venezuela goalkeeper Alain Baroja slid and deflected Cueva's point-blank shot just outside the 6-yard box.
