Sensational hatrick from magician Messi took Argentina in world cup 2018

Argentina needed a result on Tuesday night in order to punch a ticket to the 2018 World Cup, and facing a tough trip to Ecuador, they wanted to start off hot. Instead, they started the game in the worst way possible, with Ecuador scoring in the first minute.

With its chances of qualifying dwindling, Lionel Messi put the team on his back by scoring three goals in practically a span of an hour (including two in the first 30 minutes) as Argentina secured a 3-1 win and a ticket to Russia. It was Messi's most iconic performance ever in an Argentina shirt.
