about the video

Lionel Messi’s three goals lifted Argentina into the 2018 FIFA World Cup on the last day of South American qualifying, keeping the Albiceleste from missing out for the first time since 1970. The two-time champions — and losing finalists three years ago in Brazil — rode on Messi’s hat trick in the thin air of the Andes and rallied for a 3-1 win over Ecuador, who took a surprising lead in the first minute.
