VIDEO: Lionel Messi Sets Up Ridiculous Goal For Argentina Vs. Nigeria

Angel di Maria finished off Argentina's second goal in their international friendly against Nigeria, but that's not what anyone is talking about right now. Once again, the star of the show is Lionel Messi, who supposedly doesn't show up when he puts on the Argentina shirt or some nonsense like that. Here's a video of Messi running straight through four - count 'em - four Nigeria defenders before hitting a shot on target. Nigeria's keeper gets a finger to it, but di Maria is right there to tap it in.

 

And that's not all Messi has done in this game. Just a few minutes before this, he played an absolutely brilliant pass to Gonzalo Higuain to put him in a one-on-one situation. Pipita finished with a brilliant half volley. Right now, fans are probably wondering where this was in the Copa America. Believe it or not, Messi was never the problem for the Albiceleste...
