Lionel Messi scores four goals against Arsenal

| 2 Comments | No TrackBacks


To say that Barcelona's Lionel Messi put on a show yesterday in his club's 4-1 Champions League victory over Arsenal would be a wild understatement. I mean, it's not an everyday occurrence for a player to score four goals against a world-class opponent. Rarer still is scoring a hat trick in a 22-minute span.

Then again, Messi isn't your average footballer.

The 22-year-old Argentine is widely recognized as the game's best player and has even made the casual American take notice. This, of course, is no small feat.

Messi became the sixth player in Champions League history to score four goals in a game with his offensive explosion. Previously, the phenom had scored three hat tricks for Barca.
