Lionel Messi absolutely ended a Urawa Reds player’s career and brought laughter from the commentator.
Paris Saint-Germain are over in Japan for a pre-season tour and beat the J-League outfit 3-0 in their latest outing, with Pablo Sarabia, Kylian Mbappe and Arnaud Kalimuendo all on target.
Messi didn’t find the net but still managed to produce a jaw-dropping moment in the second half.
The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner received the ball on the right with his back to goal from Sergio Ramos and was immediately put under pressure.
But then the Argentina captain had the defender twisting and turning all over the place with his trademark shimmies.
He must have been getting dizzy and then just when he made a desperate attempt to get the ball, Messi held him off and he ended up falling right on his backside.
It was a vintage piece of Messi magic and the type of play he’s displayed against some of the best defenders in the history of the game.
But the commentator on beiN Sports, who were streaming the game, couldn’t hold his laughter in live on air.
He was heard having a little chuckle after watching Messi out snatch a soul from an opponent’s body. Just imagine if Ray Hudson was doing the game, he’d have lost his mind.
Mbappe scored the second goal, scoring from an impossible angle after a delightful touch to get away from his defender and dart inside the area.
The Saitama Stadium was stunned and erupted into applause for the fine strike.
PSG have won four out of four under new manager Christophe Galtier, who has replaced Mauricio Pochettino at the Parc des Princes.
The former Lille and Nice manager has already introduced strict new rules, having reportedly banned the use of mobile phones in the canteen in a bid to promote socialising amongst the squad.
Players must also turn up for training between 8:30 and 8:45 and if they are late they will be sent home.
