Argentina 4-1 Chile

Barcelona superstar Lionel Messi enjoyed a commanding debut as Argentina skipper as his country opened their 2014 FIFA World Cup™ qualifying campaign with a 4-1 win over Chile.

Messi scored once while Real Madrid striker Gonzalo Higuain hit a hat-trick to give new coach Alejandro Sabella a triumphant start in his first competitive match in charge. Argentina‘s Spanish club influence was completed by Angel Di Maria setting up two of the goals for his Real Madrid teammate Higuain.
