Lionel Messi netted a late penalty as Argentina drew 2-2 with Uruguay in a friendly in Israel. It was Messi against Luis Suarez, and the Uruguayan almost got the better of him scoring one goal and setting up another to give his team a 2-1 lead. But, Messi calmly slotted a spot-kick home to make sure the friendly ended all square. He has now scored in both matches since a 3-month international suspension.
