Lionel Messi's World Cup double for Argentina in Wednesday's 3-2 victory over Nigeria suggests the four-times World Player of the Year may be ready to take his place among the all-time greats of the game.Maradona dominated the finals in a way that no player had since Pele in 1970, and Messi, with four of Argentina's six goals in Brazil, putting him level at the top of the scoring chart with Barca teammate Neymar, has laid the foundations for a similar achievement.He has scored 10 times in his last eight games for his country and Wednesday became the only Argentine apart from Maradona to score four World Cup goals in a row.
