Argentina players have celebrated winning their first World Cup match of the tournament following their comfortable 2-0 win over Mexico on Saturday.

Lionel Messi proved to be the difference after his 64th minute strike from outside the box crept into the corner to hand the South American side a much-needed victory.

Argentina players were clearly relieved at avoiding a defeat that would have seen them eliminated from the competition after post-game celebrations emerged online.

In a lengthy video post, players inside the dressing room can be seen dancing to loud South American music as they celebrate on-pitch success with a singsong.

Players and team staff are shown standing on the sides with arms raised, some still in kit and other in the process of getting changed, with a chant being sung around the changing room.

Messi is caught centre-stage with his top off and a smile stretched across his face as the six-time Ballon d’Or winner helps his side of tournament hopefuls avoid an early World Cup embarrassment.

Other immediately recognisable faces include Aston Villa goalkeeper Emi Martinez who appears to be leading the antics as he jumps up and down on a centre console, while Paulo Dybala and Nicolas Otamendi are also caught on camera.

Reports from inside the ground suggested that Argentina’s players were still celebrate their group stage success over an hour after the full-time whistle with one report describing the actions as ‘bedlam’.

Argentina’s stars hopefully enjoyed their moment of emphatic release before heading back to their budget-friendly university accommodation that is a far-cry from some of the luxurious resorts other nations are staying in.

The national team opted to be placed in the student digs so they can enjoy traditional beef barbecues and other South American traditions together in the Middle East.

34-year-old Messi is playing in what is expected to be his last World Cup with the football sensation having already called time on his international career once before.

Messi carries the weight of a nation on his bac with Argentina supporters desperate to see their hero emulate the success of national hero Diego Maradona who led the country to a 1986 World Cup title.

The PSG forward has so far scored two goals in the tournament with Messi hoping to clinch the golden boot and World Cup title in Qatar.
