Argentine superstar Lionel Messi paid tribute to strike partners Luis Suarez and Neymar after the trio combined to deliver Barcelona a record third Club World Cup title on Sunday — and warned the rest of the world they are not finished yet.

Four-time world player of the year Messi returned from a medical complaint to lead Barcelona to a 3-0 win over South American champions River Plate in Yokohama, scoring the opening goal before Uruguayan Suarez added two more in the second half.

Messi and Neymar were playing their first games in Japan this week, having missed Thursday's 3-0 semifinal win over Guangzhou Evergrande, and Argentine side River felt the full force of the "MSN" reunion as all three ran riot in front of 66,853 at Nissan Stadium.
