A thrilling 3-2 win over Nigeria sealed Argentina's place at the summit of Group F on Wednesday, in turn guaranteeing Alejandro Sabella's men a kind-looking run to at least the World Cup semi-finals in Brazil.
Lionel Messi, in particular, was devastating for the Seleccion, scoring twice to lead his side to victory.
Despite winning all three games so far, however, this is not the time for the coach to become complacent. There is still work to be done on this Albiceleste team, even if the most recent performance constituted a wholesale improvement over what had been seen against Bosnia-Herzegovina and Iran.
From a rickety back line to a tendency to leave Messi to take on the world alone, these are the things Sabella must drill into his side if they are to continue their upward course in the 2014 World Cup.
