Lionel Messi has just posted this insane assist against Nigeria in Bangladesh, nabbing the ball on the half-way line, stripping past three or four defenders while holding them all at bay before seeing his angled shot palmed into Angel Di Maria’s path for an easy roll-in…
Okay, so it’s not technically an assist, but it never ceases to amaze me how easy the wee chap makes dribbling at full-tilt look. He’s really quite good at it.
For the record, the game is still in progress with the score standing at 3-1 Argentina at the time of writing – Higuain, Di Maria and an own goal for the Albiceleste, Chinedu Obasi replying for Nigeria.
