awarded the 24-year-old Messi the captaincy of the squad, in accord with then-captainJavier Mascherano. Reserved by nature, Messi went on to lead his squad by example as their best player, while Mascherano continued to fulfill the role of the team's on-field leader and motivator.Ina further redesign of the team, Sabella dismissed Tevez and brought in players with whom Messi had won the World Youth Championship and Olympic Games. Now playing in a free role in an improving team, Messi finally ended his goal drought by scoring during their first World Cup qualifying match againstChileon 7 October, his first official goal for Argentina in two-and-a-half years.
Under Sabella, Messi's goalscoring rate drastically increased; where he had scored only 17 goals in 61 matches under his previous managers, he scored 25 times in 32 appearances during the following three years.He netted a total of 12 goals in 9 games for Argentina in 2012, equalling the record held byGabriel Batistuta, Argentina's all-time top scorer, for the most goals scored in a calendar year for their country.
