Leo Messi has done it again.
Argentina’s star player scored two goals in the first half of the World Cup game against Nigeria to break the hearts of the African giants. There’s still 45 minutes left to play in the match, but Nigeria has a lot of work cut out for them if they want to try to salvage a draw in case Iran beats Bosnia-Herzegovina.
Messi scored his first goal of the game in the third minute after poor defending by Nigeria. But it was Messi’s goal on the stroke of halftime from a free kick that was simply sensational.
