Messi: We have to be wary of Peru

Argentina captain Lionel Messi said his side cannot afford to rest on their laurels ahead of their trip to Peru on Tuesday.
Argentina defeated Paraguay 3-1 on Friday to move to the top of the Conmebol World Cup qualifying group thanks to goals from Angel Di Maria, Gonzalo Higuain and Messi, who iced the game with a wonderful free kick in the second half.

Argentina now lead Chile and Ecuador by one point in the race to Brazil 2014, but Messi advised calm ahead of a potentially tricky visit to Lima.

"This triumph is very valuable, now we go to Peru who are a very difficult team to play against," Messi said.

"Leading the group is the least important aspect, the key is to keep gaining confidence as a group."

Messi also took the opportunity to thank the crowd in Cordoba, which was also the venue for Argentina's sole victory of the Copa America in 2011 over Costa Rica and where the fans were vocal in their praise for the star. 

"This is a beautiful feeling. It is incredible when the fans give you so much affection. The same happened to me in the Copa America, in Cordoba and in Buenos Aires," he said.

Messi has now scored nine goals in five international appearances during 2012, all of which have been won by Argentina.
