Russia 2018 Ronaldo Messi enthral but USA Holland fail
However, Messi revived Argentina and allowed them to dream of a new World Cup, to heal the the painful frustrations of the final they lost to Germany in Brazil 2014 and those they lost to Chile in the 2015 and 2016 editions of the Copa America.
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.
"There was always the fear of coming here to play", Messi said, per the Mail.
"A World Cup without Argentina and without Messi would be a catastrophe", he said on Super Deportivo Radio de Santa Fe. The hat-trick in the Federation Internationale de Football Association 2018 World Cup qualifiers helped Argentina to enter the World Cup in the most spectacular way possible.
With his country's 2018 World Cup hopes hanging in the balance, Lionel Messi has refused to let Argentina down thus far into the team's Tuesday-evening match against Ecuador. They should consider themselves lucky as they are going to play against a team, Ecuador, who have already been eliminated from the competition.
'We were calm, we achieved the goal and that is the most important thing. "The group deserved to qualify".
Russian Federation might be Messi's last World Cup, and it will definitely be his final attempt at the peak of his powers. The Switzerland vs Argentina football game played on February 29, 2012, saw Messi score his first ever global hat-trick for his national team. As a effect of that pressure we are stronger now, this qualification will make us stronger to face the future.
"There's enough there. There's no excuses for us not qualifying for the World Cup".
"He is the greatest player of all time and this was a triumph for him and all of the players".
After his first worldwide hat-trick, Messi scored the next two triple goals in merely one and a half year. 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.
