The Argentinian superstar Lionel Messi scored another splendid individual goal to put Barcelona 1-0 up against Huesca in La Liga.
Tonight was a very special game for the FC Barcelona legend, Lionel Messi. This was the game in which Messi equalized Xavi’s overall appearance record for Barcelona. Both of them are on 767 matches each.
Messi marked the occasion with a simply breathtaking goal. Messi was moving away from goal, with a defender right next to him. The Argentinian forward’s first touch somehow turned the defender inside out, as he spun and flicked the ball towards the goal. He then had another touch to knock the ball forwards. This brilliant touch made enough space for him to have a shot. Thus, Messi shot a lightning strike and pinged it off the underside of the crossbar and in from outside the box.
This goal is a worthy addition to Lionel Messi’s collection of wonderful goals from outside the box.
