Lionel Messi may have an extravagant new hairstyle, but he's still the same amazing talent on the field. He helped Barcelona take a 1-0 lead over Sampdoria in a preseason friendly with an audacious overhead kick assist to his best bud and La Liga top scorer, Luis Suarez:
Andres Iniesta started the move with a chipped ball into the box to Messi. The reigning Ballon d'Or winner attempted an overhead kick that may or may not have been meant as a pass. But it resulted in a perfect pass/cross right to the head of Suarez for the Uruguayan to head in with ease.
It's been a rough summer for Messi, but he's returned to Barcelona in fine form and doesn't appear to be showing any of the after effects of a disappointing time with Argentina in the Copa America. Meanwhile, Luis Suarez still can't stop scoring goals and has to be the odds on favorite to repeat as the Pichichi winner.
