While Cristiano Ronaldo was struggling to find his mojo against Germany in Euro 2012, across the Atlantic, the Real Madrid man’s nemesis was doing the business for Argentina against none other than Brazil.
Lionel Messi was the star of the show in the friendly game in New Jersey, netting a superb hat-trick, with the third goal the undoubted icing on the cake. It may not have been a competitive game, but when these two heavyweights meet, it never a sedate affair. Indeed, both Ezequiel Lavezzi and Marcelo were sent off in added time. However, just sit back and marvel at the pint-sized genius and his magnificent strike.
