Lionel Messi scores five goals as Argentina thrash Estonia in a friendly

For the second time in his career,the seven time ballon d'or winner scored five goals in a match with Estonia being the victim this time around


Messi opened the score on the 9th minute.

Gary Lineker was quick to lavish praise on Messi, tweeting soon after the final whistle: “The extraordinary Lionel Messi has scored all five of Argentina’s goals tonight.

“Astonishingly, it’s not his goal scoring that elevates him from the other greats. He’s also as good a passer and dribbler as anyone that’s ever played the game. The Messiah.”

The PSG's No.30 feasted against Estonia this evening, as he single-handedly toyed with their defense line. Lionel Messi scored five goals against the Estonians, even though he played as an attacking midfielder. The 7th Ballon D'or winner had enough space to dazzle left and right on the pitch, and he had enough support from the midfield. As a result, he focused on laying passes and creating chances, scoring 5 goals within 65 minutes
