There's nobody better than Messi at free-kicks. What's his secret? A lot of practice.
"It is true that many times we have stayed after training to practice," the 31-year-old said back in December about his set-piece prowess.
"Not only free-kicks, but also shots from outside the area. You get used to shooting in a specific way and increasingly discover your best form. In the end, everything is training and practice."
Messi takes free-kicks like they're penalties and he's brilliantly explained the difference between them.
"With a free-kick you have a barrier, the distance and it's another type of strike; you do not have the pressure to score because a free-kick can go in or not. With a penalty you have much more to lose than win. Here the goalkeeper feels more comfortable; if the player scores, it's normal as it's a penalty.
"The one who shoots is more obliged to score than the goalkeeper is to stop it. The pressure is very different."
