Just once, it'd be nice to see little Lionel Messi score a clumsy goal. Perhaps he could charge down a goal kick with his groin and miss it going into the net because he's too busy shouting sweet Jesus to the heavens.

Or he could trip on his own shoe lace and go smashing face first into a goalpost as the ball dribbles awkwardly over the line.

Above is a clip of him getting it right again in yesterday's match against Brazil. Bloody high achiever.
