Lionel Messi and Argentina's media boycott is a recurring theme

Lionel Messi and his teammates announced they will no longer speak with the press going forward following their win over Colombia.
Alejandro Moreno talks how Brazil and Argentina are looking following the latest round of World Cup qualifiers.

A good performance and, above all, a superb reaction to the disappointing loss against Brazil, brought a 3-0 victory for Argentina against Colombia on Tuesday night. 

However, almost as soon as the game was over, the sports pages were dominated by the Argentina squad's decision that all 26 players would attend the news conference, while Lionel Messi, as captain, told the assembled press the players wouldn't be talking to them until further notice following claims made against striker Ezequiel...

Argentina, Netherlands, Japan and Ghana in danger of missing World Cup

Alejandro Moreno talks how Brazil and Argentina are looking following the latest round of World Cup qualifiers.

With 12 months to go before we know the 31 teams who will join hosts Russia at the 2018 World Cup, we take a look at some of the major nations and familiar names who appear to have a battle on their hands to make the finals.

Argentina and Chile

Argentina's 3-0 defeat in Brazil last week left them facing a huge crisis in their qualification bid. However, victory at home to Colombia on Tuesday averted this for now, as at least that win left them fifth and that offers a playoff against the winners of...

Lucas Pratto shows that Argentina, top clubs still need no-name teammates

Lionel Messi and his teammates announced they will no longer speak with the press going forward following their win over Colombia.
Lucas Pratto may never score again for Argentina but his goal taught an important lesson about national team football.

A casual fan might have been dumbstruck seeing Argentina's lineup against Colombia. A back four, Lucas Biglia and Javier Mascherano shielding, Ever Banega handling playmaking duties (not entirely unexpected), Angel Di Maria and Lionel Messi cutting in from wide and, up front ... Lucas Pratto.

Not Gonzalo Higuain, who set a Serie A goalscoring record last year. (He was on the bench.) Not Sergio "Kun" Aguero, who may well be the best striker in the Premier League and was the second-leading scorer...

HEROES

It's unlikely that their fans will forgive them in hurry for losing 3-0 to Brazil on Thursday, but at least Argentina are back to winning ways. A resounding 3-0 victory over Colombia, started with a glorious free kick from Lionel Messi, went some way to improving matters. Had Colombia won, Argentina would have found themselves four points...

Lionel Messi and his teammates announced they will no longer speak with the press going forward following their win over Colombia.

Argentina put last week's loss to Brazil behind them with a comprehensive 3-0 win over Colombia on Tuesday evening.

The win puts La Albiceleste's CONMEBOL World Cup qualifying campaign firmly back on track.

Here are three thoughts from the match:

1. What on earth would Argentina do without Lionel Messi?

How Argentina needed their star man to step up! The early exchanges were worrying. Juan Cuadrado was looking dangerous running at the left side of the home defence. And then Lionel Messi took control.
