I think we can all agree that Lionel Messi is the best player in the world and it’s hardly a secret that this fact irks Cristiano Ronaldo, the world’s second best player, to his overly preened, mahoganied, metrosexual core.
The little magician appears to revelling in the fact by proving that no matter what CR7 can do, he can do it too and with a whole lot less fuss.
Here’s a GIF of Messi slotting in a free-kick underneath the leaping Uruguayan wall in Argentina’s 3-0 World Cup qualifier win. Something which both Ronaldo and Andrea Pirlo have done recently.
If you look close enough you can see Messi mouth the words “Suck it Ronaldo!” as he celebrates…maybe. I don’t speak Spanish.
