  • Koke pleased with Atletico display against Barcelona Messi

Argentina got what they deserved when they qualified for next year's World Cup in Russian Federation with a 3-1 victory over Ecuador, according to football legend Lionel Messi. Luckily, Argentina's brilliant forward recorded three goals in the match to complete a come-from-behind victory and cement the team's high World Cup hopes.

"Everybody knows what we went through to be in the World Cup".

Mascherano started Tuesday's 3-1 South American qualifying victory in Ecuador that guaranteed Argentina a place at next year's finals in Russian Federation.

However they struggled in the qualifiers and needed a hat-trick from Lionel Messi to get them to Russian Federation.

Messi then put Argentina ahead in the 20th minute, firing a superb shot past Maximo Banguera into the top corner, and completed his hat-trick just past the hour, shaking off three exhausted Ecuador defenders before lifting the ball over the advancing goalkeeper and into the net.

With Honduras stunning group winners Mexico 3-2, the United States' 2-1 defeat to Trinidad and Tobago saw them finish fifth in the six-team North, Central American and Caribbean (CONCACAF) final qualifying round.
