Messi’s 18th minute goal was Argentina’s second in Argentina’s 4 -1 destruction of Mexico in a friendly.

It was a truly stunning set of passes around the edge of the Mexican area [ 5 in all ] – go ahead and count them – which ended with Messi sidefooting the ball into the net.  Both teams are preparing for World Cup qualifying games later this month, and this goal was truly vintage Argentina – if they keep this up they could be well in with a shout to be World champions.

  1. I miss everyone kicking off on a Saturday at three. It’s annoying that when watching MOTD on a Saturday night, and they show the premiership table, not everyone has played so you need to have a degree in mathematics just to work out who might be where at the end of the weekend after all the Sunday and Monday games.

    Whilst I agree premiership games are primarily changed because of mid-week fixtures, would it not be easier if ALL champions league matches were played on the same night? That would mean that all teams involved in midweek games would be able to play on the same day at the weekend, whereas at the moment you’d have Liverpool having a three day rest and Arsenal a four.
