After a triumph over Peru in Lima, Lionel Messi praised Argentina's development.

Lionel Messi

lauded Argentina's presentation against

Peru

and trusts they are just getting more powerful. 

Nicolas Gonzalez and Lautaro Martinez scored first-half objectives in Lima on Tuesday, boosting Lionel Scaloni's chaps to a third victory in four

World Cup 2022 qualifiers

Argentina

stretched out their unbeaten spell to 11 games, while they have succeeded in their previous three away qualifiers – something they had not accomplished since 2000. 

Messi was satisfied with Argentina's presentation, which came five days after their tie at home to

Paraguay

"Happy with the victory, we needed it after the game we played the other day," the Argentinian genius said on Twitter.

"From the beginning we had a great match, the goals came and we created many, many chances."

Messi added: "The second half the other day was already very good and I think we continued on the same line, even raising the level a bit.

"I think this is the way we have to follow. Little by little we are becoming stronger as a group."

Messi played his 142 national caps against Peru, joining Brazil's incredible

Cafu

for the equivalent fifth-most by a South American man. 

The six-time

Ballon d'Or

champ desires to keep playing for Argentina.

"Whenever I come here I try to do my best and I feel qualified to fight for this shirt," Messi said.

"I feel good to continue working and adding games.
