NO MESS-ING LIONEL MESSI scored a right-footed wondergoal to perfectly warm up Argentina ahead of the World Cup.
Julian Alvarez, Joaquin Correa, a Angel Di Maria double, and Messi’s stunner saw Argentina thump United Arab Emirates.
Lionel Messi scoring a right-footed wondergoal for Argentina ahead of the World Cup.
The PSG star scored the pick of the bunch just before the break as he cut in from the right and chipped the ball with his weaker foot into the top corner.
It gave some of his most loyal fans the chance to aim a dig at footballing rival Cristiano Ronaldo.
One said: “Ronaldo can’t do this.”
Another said: “Ronaldo wishes he was him.”
One added: “Lionel Messi. The greatest there is. The greatest there was. The greatest there ever will be.”
Another added: “This is why Messi is the greatest player of all time.”
Messi, 35, and Ronaldo, 37, have shared one of the greatest rivalries in the history of football.
But even off the field there is constant competition between the two.
During Ronaldo’s bombshell world exclusive with The Sun’s Piers Morgan, he boasted of beating Messi’s shirt sales record.
Morgan said the Portugal icon broke the record for most shirt sales in 24 hours after he re-joined Manchester United.
Ronaldo replied: “As you know, I do not follow the records, the records follow me. Another one in my book.”
