Argentina attacker Paulo Dybala described himself as “lucky” to be able to see the magic of Lionel Messi up close after his nation reached the World Cup.

In recent times there are comparisons between the two Argentine,however the Juve forward thinks Leo is on another level.

A sublime hat-trick from Messi saw Argentina to a come-from-behind 3-1 win over Ecuador in Quito on Tuesday.

Having looked in danger of missing out on Russia 2018, the result saw Jorge Sampaoli’s men finish third in CONMEBOL qualifying.

“I am lucky to see him and have him so close,” the Juventus star said, via the team’s Twitter account.

“We must analyse everything that has happened so far and improve,” he said.

Uruguay and Colombia joined Brazil and Argentina in sealing automatic places, while Peru go into a play-off against New Zealand and South American champions Chile stunningly missed out altogether.
