Argentina main man Leo Messi was the subject of intense criticism over the past couple of days as his country got on the verge of missing out on the 2018 FIFA World Cup.
People laid into the Barcelona star after the goalless draw against Peru but Messi responded brilliantly in Ecuador.
The Argentine forward bagged a hat-trick in his country’s 3-1 victory last night to singlehandedly take his team to Russia.
His brilliant performance is summed up in a couple of minutes right here in this video.
