​Newcastle striker Rondon happy with Argentina wi

Newcastle striker Salomon Rondon is delighted at his country's win over Argentina.

He was part of the Venezuela side that managed a 3-1 win during the international break - with Rondon getting a great goal in the match.

Even though it was Lionel Messi's return to Argentina in the friendly, Rondon and Venezuela overshadowed the Barca star.

Rondon reflected on the win to NUFC TV: "Messi came back to the national team in that game.

"People made a lot about Messi playing but we played really well and won the game.

"Of course it's only my opinion, Messi is the best player in the world and in history.

"It was a great performance from my national team."
