Messi scored a goal as Argentina beat Uruguay 3-0.

Lionel Messi is known for playing beautiful football that amazes fans and opponents alike. However, his opening goal in Argentina’s 3-0 victory over Uruguay on Sunday was a little less magical, but still much appreciated.

Argentina hosted the FIFA World Cup qualifying match in Buenos Aires, and Uruguay lost to the hosts. In the 38th minute, Messi shed the first blood through a pass to find striker Nicolas Gonzalez. However, the Argentine forward missed the “assist” which was later missed by Uruguay keeper Fernando Maslera. As a result, the goal was to pass.
