Napoli president Aurelio de Laurentiis was delighted by his club's influence on last night’s friendly between Italy and Argentina.

Napoli strikers Gonzalo Higuain and Lorenzo Insigne were both on the scoresheet as Argentina won 2-1.

“Italy lose, but Napoli win with two sensational goals: Higuain and Insigne,” wrote ADL.

“Compliments to both! Pipita played like a real champion. Lorenzo is a phenomenon who is growing. He came off the bench and transformed Italy. I am proud of him.

“Federico Fernandez was a wall in defence, while Christian Maggio also did well, but tonight Argentina played better and deserved the victory."
