Simeone: Messi was everything Argentina fans wanted

Simeone: Messi was everything Argentina fans wanted”

Soccer-mad Argentina is on tenterhooks as the team, and arguably the world's best player Lionel Messi faces a must-win match against Ecuador in Quito to qualify for next year's World Cup finals in Russian Federation. Luckily, Argentina's brilliant forward recorded three goals in the match to complete a come-from-behind victory and cement the team's high World Cup hopes. Let us know in the comments section below.

While Sampaoli was delighted with his captain's performance, he said the side had to stop relying on him so much.

The versatile Barcelona star, who turns 34 next June, is Argentina's second most-capped player with 139 appearances for his country and played in the 2014 World Cup final defeat to Germany.

Messi bagged a stunning hat-trick on Tuesday night in a 3-1 win over Ecuador to ensure the two-time winners booked their place in Russian Federation.

"Can you imagine what the show's going to be like if Argentina wins?"

"I proposed that after Noel Gallagher, who leaves at seven, we will televise the game of Argentina and then play U2", Daniel Grinbank, the organiser of the event, told La Nacion. "Playing in a World Cup and trying to get back to the final is one of them".

There was no doubt about the victor from Roman Torres, however, after he hammered home a volley in the 88th-minute to spark wild celebrations in the stadium.
