Lionel Messi was Lionel Messi at his best during Argentina's World Cup Qualifying match against Colombia. He was involved in all three goals, with two fantastic assists to Lucas Pratto and Angel Di María.
And then there was his goal, which was one of the most beautiful free-kicks you'll ever see, off the crossbar into the net, out of the reach of Colombia goalkeeper David Ospina:
¡GOLAZO DE MESSI! Leo convirtió de tiro libre el 1-0 ante Colombia, en San Juan https://t.co/zEq8PhE6GG— TyC Sports (@TyCSports) 15 de novembro de 2016
And you know what the craziest thing is? Messi literally scored the EXACT SAME GOAL, from almost the EXACT SAME SPOT, during the warm ups.
Passando pela sua TL um tal Lionel Messi aquecendo antes do jogo que fez o mesmo gol de falta.... gênio! pic.twitter.com/LJo2WGMjPV— Vessoni (@Vessoni) 16 de novembro de 2016
Seriously, this dude is insane. He just scored a ridiculous free-kick in warm ups, then about 20-30 minutes later he goes and does the exact same thing, only with a wall of tall players and a very good goalkeeper to beat this time around. We shouldn't be surprised by Messi anymore, but he's so ridiculous you just can't help but be impressed.
Barcelona fans should be thankful everyday to have this dude on the team.
