Naturally, fans are full of praise for the Argentinian captain, with many believing that it further cements his status as the greatest footballer of all time.


Messi’s action yesterday shows that he is not after records. He had all the chance to make it four goals yesterday after getting a penalty, but he gave the ball to Di Maria just to have his name on the score sheet. Just like he was doing for Neymar and Suarez. That’s why he is loved.


“Age is just a number for him ”


“No other player can ever do what Messi does.”


"Best international player of all time."


"That's the GOAT ❤️"
