Messi inspires Argentina to big win
After enduring the ignominy and humiliation of that 3 – 0 loss to Brazil,Argentina desperately needed a win against Colombia.
Argentina had not found themselves in such a difficult position in the closing stages of a World Cup qualifying competition for a long time.Their hopes hang by a thread.
No better time for Messi to come back to his brilliant best.He opened the scoring in the 10th minute with this superb long distance free kick.
Argentina eventually made it a comfortable 3 – 0 win.
But they are not out of the woods yet.They are in 5th place with 6 matchdays left to make it to Russia in 2018.
