Close to 30-yards out, and Lionel Messi’s left foot calling the shots. What’s gonna happen, you ask? How about a beautifully placed pinger dropping in off the crossbar to propel his F.C. Barcelona side to a 4-1 victory over fellow Catalan rival Espanyol during Wednesday’s Copa del Rey derby.
Behold, “magisterial!” as Ray Hudson would deem it…
What did it look like sitting in the Nou Camp, huh? This, this, THIS.
That beautiful, beautiful left boot. La Pulga City!
