Fernando Gago admits that Argentina cannot be reliant on forward Lionel Messi all the time for their own good.

Argentina international midfielder Fernando Gago has said that they cannot rely on forward Lionel Messi all the time.

Messi was on target for the South American giants on Friday, as they defeated Paraguay 3-1 at home in their 2014 World Cup qualifier.

"Having Lionel is a bonus, but Argentina cannot play the ball only to Messi," Gago told Clarin.

"We are building a style of play from several sides now."

Argentina are away at Peru in their next CONMEBOL fixture on Tuesday.
