Argentina 7-0 Curacao: World Cup winners run riot, Messi scores hat-trick



Well, there was no way Curaçao were getting out alive once Argentina finally got going at the Estadio Único Madre de Ciudades, and they can consider themselves lucky that Argentina stepped off the gas in the second half..

During the final 20 of the first period it looked as though the record books were coming out again while Messi was running riot, grabbing a hat trick and surpassing 100 Argentina goals in typically brilliant fashion.

The second half was a lot more reserved, with the changes inevitably slowing the game down, but Argentina continued to party, and not just in the stands.

Di María and Montiel got on the scoresheet as Scaloni’s side carved open the away team time and time again. In the end, the result was what we expected but full credit has to go to Curaçao who played well in moments and a special mention to Room, in goal, who was MVP for me, as he kept the score at single figures.

Argentina are the first national team since Brazil (28 years ago) to win their first 2 games after winning a World Cup.

It’s official, Argentina will be top of the FIFA ranking in April, taking Brazil off number 1.
