Is Lionel Messi’s second goal (above) of his hat-trick against Real Zaragoza in Spain’s La Liga an early contender for Goal of the Century?
The goal will have to compete with one he scored another Spanish club, Getafe, last year:
I like the goal against Zaragoza better. Messi strips the ball from a midfielder, beats a defender and leaves him stranded, then breaks the ankle (in basketball speak) of another defender and shoots pass another before beating the goalkeeper.
