WATCH: Blind Iranian Player Scores Messi-Esque Goal At Paralympics

The Paralympics regularly provide us with incredible moments of inspiration and Iranian blind footballer Behzad Zadaliasghari may have given us the greatest moment of this year's games when he channeled his inner Lionel Messi, last night.

Zadaliasghari left Morocco's entire defence in his wake as he slalomed through before tucking a right footed effort underneath the goalkeeper to hand Iran a 2-0 lead.

The term superhuman doesn't quite do him justice:


Most footballers can't even score goals as good as this with the gift of sight. We can't wait to see more of Zadaliasghari as the tournament progresses.
