Winning World cup is our dream; says Messi as Argentina beat Haiti in warm up match
The Barcelona super star scored a hat-trick against 108 ranked Haiti
Lionel Messi said winning World Cup would be a dream as the super star scored a hat-trick in Argentina’s thrashing of minnows Haiti 4-0 in their world cup warm up match at Boca Junior’s stadium in Buenos Aires.
The Barcelona play maker also set-up Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero for the fourth goal against a team ranked 108th in the world.
“The World Cup is our dream, the dream of the country. We’re going to leave everything in the World Cup.” Messi said after the match.
“We’re not going as favourites but will give it our all”

Messi opened the scoring from the penalty spot after 17 minutes then found the net twice after the break before setting up the goal for Aguero, who has recovered from a knee injury,.
“More than the result we were able to say goodbye to our fans,” Messi added. “We had a complicated time in the qualifiers, but we are training well.”
Argentina now fly to Barcelona to prepare for World Cup group matches against Iceland on 16 June, Croatia on 21 June and Nigeria on 26 June. Argentina will also play their final pre-world cup warm up match against Israel on June 9 amidst international call from the activists for boycotting the meeting.
