Messi’s Wonder Goal


Leo Messi’s second goal in the Romareda has impacted around the world. Everyone’s talking about a superb goal – a fusion of Messi’s speed and class.

Some people are comparing Leo Messi’s sensational goal to the one scored by Ronaldo – then a Barca player – against Compostela in the 1996/97 season. Others are comparing him to Maradona. But one thing is certain; his second goal against Zaragoza was a work of art by an artist with an extensive repertoire! The world of football stands in awe of the young Argentine striker.
