Thiago Messi scores golazo

It echoed the heroic display of the World Cup winner during the August 2023 Leagues Cup Final, where his trademark left-footed curler and a successful penalty kick in the shootout secured the MLS side's first trophy.

Thiago's goal, however, was executed with his right foot, yet it was equally remarkable.

The ball soared high into the box from the left flank, and the youngster connected with it before it hit the ground, driving a first-time shot into the bottom corner.
