Lionel Messi is a once-in-a-generation player who can do things no one else can. So it’s no surprise that on a day that saw a historic upset at the Euros, he still is the talk of the soccer world. I mean, when you score a goal like this, it’s pretty hard to ignore.
His masterpiece came in a friendly between Argentina and Brazil. The diminutive lefty took the ball at half-pitch and rocketed through the Brazilian defense before bending an insane hook into the upper 90.
