Paulo Dybala Says He's Lucky To Watch Lionel Messi

Incredibly, only two "players" scored for Argentina in their final eight World Cup qualifiers: Messi, and own goal.

A sublime hat-trick from Messi saw Argentina to a come-from-behind 3-1 win over Ecuador in Quito on Tuesday.

The fear that Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo and Antoine Griezmann could all be sat at home next June was allayed during the latest round of group games when 12 countries in total booked their passage to Russian Federation.

While Messi scored his first ever hat-trick goals in 2007 for FC Barcelona, his first worldwide Hatrick came against Switzerland in a friendly match.

Critics have argued the 30-year-old needs to lead his country to tournaments success to better Diego Maradona, who lifted the World Cup in 1986 and was player of the tournament.

Additional security forces and state police personnel had been deployed in the town to prevent any law and order problem. He was also involved in attacks on telecommunications towers across the valley in 2015, the SSP said.

"This team deserves to be at the World Cup", Messi said, as quoted by the Argentina FA's official Twitter account and translated into English. "Nahhhhhh", Donnytheprince wrote, alongside a gif of Ronaldo celebrating one of his goals against the Swedes. Argentina needed him to pull them out of a deep, deep hole, and that's precisely what he did.

Lionel Messi scored his fastest hat-trick in his senior career in a match against Rayo Vallecano on March 8, 2015. While his side allowed a goal within the first minute, he answered with a hat trick in a pressure-packed environment.

La Tri is most recently coming off a 2-1 loss against Chile away from home but should be able to put in a solid effort in this match.

The second goal was his 20th all-time in World Cup qualifying for Argentina, leaving him as the first man in the region to reach that mark.

It was a case of "anything you can do, I can do better" for Messi last night. Messi is the only player in history to win five FIFA Ballon d'Or awards and his entry into the FIFA 2018 World Cup is bound to make the game all the more fun and entertaining.
