It was always going to be Lionel Messi’s night for Argentina against minnows, Curacao, and in true Messi fashion, not only did he score his 100th goal for his country, he also went on to complete a first half hat-trick.
Although it took just under 20 minutes for La Albiceleste to get on the scoresheet, the floodgates then opened, with the final score of 7-0 a reflection of Argentine dominance.
Messi got them on their way with a low drive and also had time to provide a first-half assist as well as plundering two more goals for himself.
He’s now the only world champion in history to reach the magical mark of 100 goals.
