Lionel Messi rushing forward with the ball glued to his feet is a sight that one can never get enough of. When he wants to be, Argentina captain Lionel Messi is unplayable, and he was in that mode against Ecuador on Saturday evening.
Argentina beat Ecuador 3-0 to advance to the Copa America semi-finals in 2021, with Messi assisting on all three goals.
In the waning minutes of the game, he assisted Rodrigo De Paul and Lautaro Martinez before finishing the slaughter with a well-taken free-kick.
