Lionel Messi scored wonder goal just moments into Argentina match vs Australia, he's still got it

Lionel Messi is in action for Argentina

Argentina legend Lionel Messi scored less than two minutes into a friendly clash against Australia.

Messi and his Argentina teammates are in Beijing, China as they take on the Australians in front of a packed crowd.

Most of the fans inside the stadium were looking forward to watching the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner in action and they were treated to his magic in the early stages.

Within two minutes, Messi took the ball and sat a defender down before unleashing an unstoppable drive into the back of Matty Ryan’s goal.

Fans were quick to react to the goal on social media.

One said: “What a goal man. Leo Messi is running the show!”

Another tweeted: “Lionel Messi with this gem of a goal for Argentina!”

A third fan added: “Wow! Lionel GOAT Messi inside two minutes, what a goal as well.”

Someone else wrote: “Messi scores within 2 mins lmao ok then, is it fair they have a GOAT on their team? I think not??”

Whilst a fifth commented: “What a goal from Lionel Messi to put Argentina ahead of Australia.”

Over the past few weeks, Messi has been making the headlines as his future became the talk of the town.

Last week, it was confirmed that the Argentine will leave French club Paris Saint Germain when his contract expires at the end of the month.

During an interview with Spanish news outlets SPORT and Mundo Deportivo, Messi announced that he will be joining MLS side Inter Miami, owned by former Manchester United and England star David Beckham.

On his new career move, Messi said: “I will not return to Barcelona, I will join Inter Miami.

“After winning the World Cup and not being able to go to Barca, it was time to go to the United States to live football in a different way and enjoy more day to day. Obviously with the same responsibility and desire to want to win and to always do things well. But more calmly.”
