Barcelona`s Messi Comes to Argentina`s Rescue

Barcelona`s Messi Comes to Argentina`s Rescue

Ahead of their World Cup qualifier, against Ecuador, last night, Argentina were in grave danger of not making the 2018 Finals, in Russia.

A poor qualifying campaign had left them teetering on the edge of elimination.

However, as we`ve come to learn over the years, never give up hope when you`ve got Lionel Messi in your side.

Although Argentina got off to a disastrous start, going a goal behind after just 38 seconds, Messi stole the show, with a hat-trick, ensuring that Argentina`s almost mandatory appearance in the World Cup Finals continues.

Messi scored the equaliser after linking up with Angel di Maria and then put Argentina ahead with a strike from the edge of the area. His hat-trick was sealed late on when he scored a fine solo goal.

Speaking about the player we know is the best in the world, after the game, the Argentine manager, Jorge Sampaoli, had this to say,

'Luckily the nationality of the best player in the world is Argentinian.

'We must be sure everything does not depend on Leo Messi but today he brought his great ability.

'I told the group: Messi did not owe the World Cup to Argentina, but football owed the World Cup to Messi. We should help him be in the World Cup.'

The World Cup Finals wouldn`t be the same without Messi and Argentina would they!

He is the real superstar of world football, prefer him to Ronaldo, but remember he has never scored against Chelsea :-)
