As if we needed anything else to demonstrate the outrageous skills of Lionel Messi. After the Argentine’s stunning match-winner against Iran to secure progression through to the last 16 of the World Cup, Messi and Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero wowed the audience at their training base with a show of keepy-uppy, with a difference.
With Messi on the pitch, and Aguero stood the other side of a fence, some two metres above his teammate/roommate, the two stars nonchalantly pass the ball back and forth whilst keeping the ball off the ground.
This is yet another example of the kind of skills that elevate these players above us mere mortals. I salute you, young Argentines.
