Ecuador Vs Argentina. Marvelous Messi Messes Up Ecuador With A Hat-trick. by uneeking(m): 5:18am On Oct 11, 2017
There is a saying that goes thus; “When the Going Gets Tough, The Tough Gets Going”. That is exactly what happened in the game between Ecuador and Argentina in the 2018 World Cup Qualification match played between the two countries just a few hours back.

A lot had been said about the possible failure of Argentina to qualify for Russia 2018 World Cup Competition with many ready to heap most of the blame on a Lionel Messi who had ensured that his country even got this outside chance for qualification to the tournament in the first place.

Just take a look through the qualifying matches and you will discover that matches played without him either ended in draws or worse still, outright defeats to teams that are far below Argentina’s soccer pedigree.

But then as expected of the quiet giant that he is, Lionel Messi came out firing on all cylinders to silence all his known and unknown enemies by single-handedly qualifying his country for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia by scoring an unforgettable hat-trick in the final qualifying game in the South American zone for Argentina.

Marvellous Merciless Messi had to first of all watch one Romario Ibarra score the first goal of the game for the hosts, Ecuador in the very first minute of the game! The little giant must have decided at that moment to play the game of his life as he went on to score a hat-trick that will remain indelible in the minds of soccer fans across the globe especially the Argentinian ones.

The F.C. Barcelona star took the Ecuadorian side apart with three beautiful goals scored in the 11th, 18th and 62nd minutes to silence all the prophets of doom that were waiting in the wings to publish a sensational exit of the star and his Argentinian team from the qualifications series.

The importance of this hat-trick can only better be understood by taking a cursory look at the position of the Argentinian team on the table of the South American Qualifying zone before this epic match. There you will find out the many variables that could have sent Argentina packing or at best qualifying for a play-off game.

But then Merciless Mercy had a different opinion and other important things on his mind as he decided to put all permutations to rest and move on with his life as he has some other challenges to overcome especially with his beloved F.C. Barcelona of Spain. Or is it of Catalonia now? You surely see what I mean now with the phrase “other challenges”.
