N the 44th minute of the friendly, Argentina put together their great circulate of the match. Brighton’s Alexis MacAllister smartly backheeled the ball to Messi, earlier than moving it to Angel Di Maria.
The Juventus winger chopped inside before giving the ball returned to the PSG big name, and the rest became vintage Messi. He shaped up as though he changed into going to curl it along with his left but, rather, dragged it beyond the defender.
Will the aim at his mercy, he took one appearance up earlier than smashing the ball – along with his weaker proper foot – into the top corner of the net.
It changed into a muted celebration from the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, who should’ve gotten used to scoring such exceptional goals.
