Lionel Messi and Argentina’s hopes of reaching the 2018 FIFA World Cup were left hanging in the balance on Thursday after another stalemate on a nail-biting day of South American qualifying action. Argentina were held to a 0-0 draw in Buenos Aires by Peru, leaving the two-time world champions outside the automatic qualification places as they head into the final round of fixtures next Tuesday. It was another desperately disappointing display by Argentina, who once again struggled to turn a wealth of possession into goals. Barcelona star Messi hit the post in the second half but could only watch in frustration after serving up a stream of chances for team-mates who failed to convert. The result left Argentina in sixth place in the standings. (Hindustan Times )
