Messi reached 80 goals with Argentina as he scored the first goal of the match and was the first to also speak to the media. Speaking after the 3-0 win, here is what he had to say:
“We played a great match, I think we are growing in terms of our play. We got used to having the ball. Today was a tough match and we had to win it. Everything turned out perfect.
