The Incredible Moment Lionel Messi Ruined Eight Uruguay Players In One Sequence

Lionel Messi left fans in complete and utter disbelief when he managed to beat eight Uruguay players in one move on Monday night.

In the second half of the 2-2 draw, Messi somehow managed to keep the ball at his feet when swarmed with defenders after collecting the ball in midfield.

Displaying unrivalled balance and agility, the five-time Ballon d'Or winner twists and turns away from players like it's the easiest thing in the world.

Even when bundled over by Lucas Torreira, he doesn't lose possession of the ball and instead rinses a further three players with the most outrageously quick turn.


He had absolutely no right to emerge with the ball and yet somehow, he was able to play a one-two with Sergio Aguero before playing the ball out wide.

Already on an assist, Messi would then equalise with a cool 92nd minute penalty to reach 70 international goals for La Albiceleste.

But this breathtaking passage of play in Tel Aviv is yet another example of his inexplicable dribbling.

Even with a whole host of players harrying and hunting him down, Messi's close control is so next level that he can easily jink his way out of the most congested spaces.

He's so good he picks up the ball and bares down on goal, that the only way you can get thwart Messi is to foul him and even then he'll still shirk off the challenge and retain possession.

There will never be anyone else like him.
