Lionel Messi's twin strikes helped Argentina thrash Paraguay and earn a FIFA World Cup berth. The striker will now need a lot more of these trademark shots if he wants to realize his dream of winning the 2014 World Cup for his side.
A title-winning performance from Argentina is long over-due with their last triumph coming in 1986, a year before Messi was even born! Now, at the helm of the national team, the 26-year-old wants to reclaim the title, trophy and the glory. "I dream of winning the World Cup. We all do in Argentina. But there is still a long way to go," he was quoted as saying after Tuesday's match.
Qualifying early, according to Messi, will help Argentina immensely. "We got what we wanted...the most important thing was to qualify as soon as possible. We want to continue like this and we want to keep winning."
