After that we beat Colombia, which wasn't easy. We won tough important games and we won consecutive games, it's been a long time since Argentina had done that. We knew we had to infect the fans with our results and our game and by getting results I think we have. And today we are lucky that the people are excited once again and we are too. And we hope we keep getting results." 4. VARIOUS OF PLAYERS PRACTISING BY PLAYER "TENNIS-SOCCER" STORY: Lionel Messi's Argentina will put the love of their fans to a new test in a World Cup qualifier against Paraguay on Friday (September 7) after the thrill of their captain's nine goals in five games. Messi scored hat-tricks in victories against Brazil and Switzerland and one apiece in wins over Colombia, Ecuador and Germany following the jeers from their 1-1 draw with Bolivia last November. "We knew we had to change things after Bolivia because of the result of that game, and we did it. After that we beat Colombia, which wasn't easy. We won tough important games and we won consecutive games which it'd been a long time since Argentina had done that. We knew we had to infect the fans with our results and our game and by getting results I think we have. And today we are lucky that the people are excited once again and we are too. And we hope we keep getting results," Messi told a news conference at Argentina's Ezeiza headquarters on Tuesday (September 4). Argentina began their five-match winning streak away to Colombia four days after the Bolivia disappointment, coming from behind to win 2-1 with goals from Messi and Sergio Aguero. The match against Paraguay at the 57,000-capacity Kempes stadium in Cordoba is a sellout and Messi says fans and the team alike are looking for a win. Argentina are third in the South American group with 10 points from five matches, two points fewer than leaders Chile, who have a bye on Friday, and one behind Uruguay, who visit Colombia. Paraguay, quarter-finalists in South Africa in 2010, are one from bottom of the nine-team group with four points.
