Messi was magical against Venezuela

Messi was magical against Venezuela

I’ve been sitting here waiting for motivation to strike and give me the energy to write up a comprehensive rundown of this weekend’s World Cup qualifiers.
And waiting, and waiting, and…

Oh, forget it…. Here are a few highlights instead.

Here is Franck Ribery’s wonderstrike (after some sweet moves by Yoann Gourcuff) against Lithuania — the only really brilliant moment in an otherwise kind of lackluster game.

Next, we have Portugal-Sweden, a tantalizing rematch of Cristiano Ronaldo and Zlatan Ibrahimovic! What a scorefest this must have been! True excitement! Goals galore! And…um…
Wait. Ibra suspended…Ronaldo misses late chance… Nil-nil. Never mind.

Now for sheer prettiness (unless you’re a Venezuela fan), you definitely want to check out the highlights of Argentina 4-0 Venezuala. Goals by Lionel Messi, Carlos Tevez, Maxi Rodriguez and Kun Aguero. What do you think? Is Maradona actually a decent coach, or does he just have too much talent under him to screw it up? Speaking of talent- check out the Messi run at the very end…..and come to think of it he’s just 21!!!!!!!!!

Spain took on Turkey in what turned out to be a pretty competitive match. Spain was not at their best but still found a way to win 1-0. Barca’s Gerard Pique scored the lone goal.They are on an amazing 30 match unbeaten streak. And I wont be surprised if they take this unbeaten streak all the way to the World cup.
