Three shots on goal have led to two scores for Lionel Messi in the first half against Nigeria. His second goal came on this beautiful free kick – in his 27th birthday cleats no less. Messi bent the ball into the far left corner, giving the keeper no chance.
The score gave Argentina a 2-1 lead. The two teams traded girls earlier in the game, setting a little World Cup history.
Here’s another look at the beautiful strike.
