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. Great article. There’s a lot of good info here, though I did want to let you know something – I am running Mac OS X with the current beta of Firefox, and the design of your blog is kind of quirky for me. I can understand the articles, but the navigation doesn’t work so well.
