Lionel Messi coolly chips for a pretty goal

Once again, Lionel Messi made a difficult thing look very easy.

Lionel Messi has a habit of doing things that few other players in the world can do. But most amazingly, he does it while looking entirely pedestrian.

Everything Messi does, he does better than anyone else. Much of it is stuff that nobody else on the field can even dream of. And he just makes it look so easy.

So when the goalkeeper gets caught on, Messi dribbles past one defender, past another, escapes the sprawling goalkeeper and then, with his off foot, chips another defender for a goal. That is very difficult to do, and he made it look like anyone can do it.

Because he's Lionel freakin' Messi.
