Lionel Messi and Carlos Tevez were the hero and villain respectively during Argentina’s 2-1 loss to Colombia in Tuesday night’s FIFA World Cup™ qualifier in Bogota.

Messi slipped past three Colombia defenders to put Argentina ahead before half-time but Manchester United forward Tevez was sent off after 25 minutes and Colombia rallied in the second half to win the high-altitude match.

It was another easy day at the office for Argentina as they romped to a 3-0 defeat of Bolivia. That said, Alfio Basile’s side struggled to find their rhythm early on and it was not until Sergio Aguero opened the scoring four minutes before half-time that they clicked into gear. Victory was sealed after the break when sorcerer-in-chief Riquelme conjured up two more spectacular strikes. With a flawless record of three games, three wins, seven goals scored and none conceded, the numbers are starting to add up for the awesome Albiceleste.

It may still be early days, but it already seems clear that no-one will be having an easy time of it away from home. The only winners on the road this week were group leaders Argentina, who recorded a relatively comfortable 2-0 win over Venezuela on Oct.16th thanks to first-half goals from Gabriel Milito and Lionel Messi.
Javier Zanetti will always remember his side’s 2-0 defeat of Venezuela. The evergreen full-back equalled Roberto Ayala’s record of 115 appearances for the Albiceleste in Maracaibo, deserved recompense for the Inter Milan skipper after he missed out on a place at Germany 2006.
