Today Barcelona defeated Zaragoza 4-2 in the Spanish League, and the small Argentinean super-star, Lionel Messi, scored three goals and got himself a penalty that he humbly let Ibrahimovic take and score. With these three goals Messi has scored eight goals in a week, and is far ahead in the top scoring list of the Spanish League. Messi is a one-man army, keeping a rather unstable Barcelona side fighting. And truly, the way Messi is playing, Barcelona can still win it all.
It is not only that he scores a lot of goals, but it is also the way he does it: they are gorgeous goals, and every moment he has the ball, one is expecting something great to happen. What Messi does is beyond football; it is art. There can be no doubt whatsoever that Messi is the best player in the world at the moment; that players like him only come once in a lifetime.
Besides this talent that all football fans are in awe about, the man is a model star: serious, hardworking, a team-player, as well as modest and humble, and these are all things where his greatness lies.
God has given all football fans a gift by letting us see Messi play football.
