Lionel Messi: Two-goal hero for Argentina in the 3-0 win over Uruguay.

Lionel Messi was the star of the show for Argentina with two goals with Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero netting the other.

The win leaves Argentina on 17 points from eight maches and on course to reach the finals in Brazil

A brace by Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao led Colombia to a 2-0 home victory over Paraguay as they kept up their pursuit of Argentina.

After a goalless first half, Falcao scored in the 52nd and 88th minutes to seal their third consecutive qualifying win and leave Paraguay rock bottom of the group.

Alongside Colombia on 16 points are Ecuador, who came from behind to beat Chile 3-1 at home.

The star of the game was Lokomotiv Moscow's Felipe Caicedo, who scored in the 32nd and 55th minutes, while Segundo Castillo completed the scoring for the hosts in the injury time.

It had not looked so easy in Quito when Juan Paredes Reascos sent the ball into his own goal in the 24th minute, but Chile could not maintain their rhythm and had Pablo Contreras and Juventus' Arturo Vidal sent off.

Finally, in La Paz, Bolivia and Peru drew 1-1, Juan Carlos Marino putting the visitors ahead in the first half and Alejandro Chumacero levelling shortly after the break.

till reckon Chelsea will go for Khedira as back up for Matic. I think it will turn out to be quite a Mourihno-y window: We'll see the squad players and youth in action pre-season, say things like well, we need not buy anybody and then the club will bid £60m for Pogba and send everybody on loan.

would love to be a fly on the wall at the meeting between Milner and Rodgers. I don't know if flies can count, but if they can then I would be counting the number of times Rodgers used the word outstanding in his attempts to get Milner to sign.

Reds and Arsenal chase Milner

W

ell, it wouldn't be a summer without Arsenal fans fretting over losing a key player, and United throwing their weight around and muscling in on transfer deals which are (apparently) near to completion. If we can't be entertained by the football on the pitch, let's enjoy the silly off-pitch soap opera of the transfer season. Hurrah!
