Gerardo Martino’s tournament favourites beat Venezuela 4-1 in Massachusetts on Saturday, with two goals from Gonzalo Higuain and one apiece from Lionel Messi and Erik Lamela.

But this Instagram upload from Javier Mascherano shows that the squad did actually mark the victory in the proper fashion – by celebrating with a meal, together as a squad.
