Messi Scores For Argentina, Alves Saves Brazil In Paraguay

Superstar Lionel Messi was on target in Argentina's 2-0 win over Bolivia in their FIFA World Cup qualifier on Wednesday morning, while Dani Alves salvaged a point for Brazil against Paraguay. 

Argentina vs Bolivia

River Plate defender Gabriel Mercado gave the Albiceleste the lead after 20 minutes following some clever play from Messi and Gonzalo Higuain, which allowed the 29-year-old to fire home into an empty net.

The second strike came just 10 minutes later, after the referee awarded a penalty to Argentina following what appeared to be a clean challenge on Ever Banega in the box.

Despite his recent form from spot-kicks, Messi coolly slotted the ball in off the post, reaching the milestone of 50 international goals for his country.

Argentina saw the rest of the game out fairly comfortably, with the final score against the Bolivians being 2-0.

Paraguay vs Brazil 

The home side took the lead 40 minutes into the match, with Dario Lezcano scoring to give his country a deserved lead.

Just after the break, Paraguay made it 2-0 against the Brazilians – this time Edgar Milciades Benitez got on the scoresheet for his team.

Brazil looked disheartened, but hope was restored just before the 80 minute mark when Ricardo de Oliveira pulled one back for the Selecao.

High pressure from Dunga's men saw Alves turn into an unlikely saviour for Brazil after the right back equalised for his country two minutes into extra time.
