Oscar Plano Contemplated His Life Choices After Being On The Receiving End Of Filthy Lionel Messi Nutmeg

Oscar Plano Contemplated His Life Choices After Being On The Receiving End Of Filthy Lionel Messi Nutmeg

Oscar Plano joined Lionel Messi's long list of nutmeg victims last night and his reaction was utterly priceless.

Commentator Ray Hudson once said, "If Messi was the captain of the titanic, he'd nutmeg the iceberg" and the Argentine lived up to that colorful statement against Real Valladolid.

Not content with two goals and two assists in a 5-1 demolition of Real Valladolid, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner decided to make Plano reassess his life choices when he nonchalantly flicked the ball through his legs.

There's no shame in having the ball rolled through your legs courtesy of Messi given he's done it to so many players and could nutmeg a mermaid - but you still had to feel for poor Plano, who looked like his soul had left his body afterwards.

You can almost hear him saying, "Hello darkness, my old friend" as he thinks about what just happened.

Compilation Of Lionel Messi Being 'The World's Best Defender' Laughs At 'Lazy' Myth

published at12 days ago

Having megged Plano in his own half on the right flank, wowing 80,000 fans in the process, Messi took three players out of the game to advance up the field and set up a Barcelona counter attack.

The Nou Camp was the stage for yet another Messi masterclass. He bagged a brace, including his 50th free-kick goal, in addition to two assists - one of which was a typically sublime pass threaded through for Arturo Vidal.

After a slightly slow start to the season, primarily because of injuries, Messi is now well and truly up and running.
