[WORLD CUP 2014 QUALIFYING: South America] Lionel Messi scored two goals, the second on a free kick 25 yards, and Sergio Aguero added a third goal to lead Argentina to a 3-0 win over Uruguay on Friday that kept it in first place. Colombia and Ecuador also won to remain one point behind the Argentines at the halfway point of the marathon South American qualifying tournament.  Uruguay is still in fourth place, ahead of Chile on goal difference, but looked nothing like the team that took fourth place at the 2010 World Cup and won the 2011 Copa America.
