Lionel Messi hat-trick: Watch Argentina star's three goals against Ecuador

Jorge Celico little known in his native Argentina could help to dash the hopes of Lionel Messi’s team if his Ecuador side deny them the win they need in their final qualifier on Tuesday in the tricky venue of Quito at high altitude in the

There is the chance that both Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo could miss out on the 2018 FIFA World Cup although both scenarios seem nearly impossible to imagine they are a possibility.

Argentina still needed to win the game as a draw wasn't enough to save them elimination from World Cup for the first time since 1970.

But with Messi at his electrifying best, no nation will want to come up against La Albiceleste in Russian Federation. At the 2022 tournament in Qatar, the Argentine will be 35 years old.

"There was always the fear of coming here to play", Messi said, per the Mail.

"As national team players we have gone through many situations". 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.

While everyone is celebrating Messi's brilliance, there are some who were expecting him to fail.

And "Donnytheprince", whose name on Twitter reads "messi hater", simply didn't envision Messi repeating Ronaldo's heroics from four years ago.

Arizona Diamondbacks at Los Angeles Dodgers Game 3 score, TV channel
Logan Forsythe and Austin Barnes had the key hits in that pivotal fifth inning, and Puig followed up to drive in two more runs. The Dodgers have a 2-0 series lead in the best-of-five divisional round following an 8-5 win over Arizona Saturday night.

Argentina face Ecuador tonight with their prospects of reaching the World Cup looking increasingly precarious.

Had Argentina need to go through the play-off then it may have been a different matter entirely, as votes would have been cast ahead of his decisive intervention (assuming he made one).

The tweet has now been retweeted 2,300 times.

Lionel Messi is often considered as the best player in the world and regarded by many as the greatest of all time and these videos hint at why fans are insane about this sports legend.

There are no more words to describe his brilliance. Messi led Argentina to victory against Brazil with a 4-3 lead.

"We must analyse everything that has happened so far and improve", he said. His Argentina team has gone through multiple coaching changes and played bad soccer in the wake of Messi and some of his teammates threatening to retire due to poor management by the Argentinian FA.
