Lionel Messi Almost Produced His Own 'Hand Of Goal' Goal Against Osasuna

Lionel Messi Almost Produced His Own 'Hand Of Goal' Goal Against Osasuna

Lionel Messi almost pulled off a 'hand of God' goal for Barcelona against Osasuna on Sunday, the same week that fellow Argentine footballing legend Diego Maradona passed away.

Messi feinted his hand towards the ball as it crossed the line for Martin Braithwaite's opener, almost mirroring the famous goal scored by Maradona to knock England out of the 1986 World Cup.

Perhaps in remembrance of the well-known moment, he thought about doing the same, but Messi appears to have thought better of it at the last moment.
