Yep, Lionel Messi did Lionel Messi things en route to scoring his first goal of the 2014 World Cup. The goal gave Argentina a 2-0 lead over Bosnia and Herzegovina in the 65th minute.
Yes, it’s only Messi’s second goal in World Cup play and first since 2006, but that’s a little misleading since the Argentina team is finally catered to bring out the best of Messi – the Messi we see week-in, week-out at Barcelona.
