Barcelona’s Lionel Messi has been known as one of the best soccer players in the world for quite some time now, yet somehow he’s still getting better. On Wednesday he became the first player to ever score 5 goals in a Champion’s League soccer match as Barcelona hammered Leverkusen.
During Messi’s magnificent performance, twitterverse was flooded with sports fans in awe of his amazing performance which led Barcelona to the Champions League quarterfinals.
Messi is a joke. For me the best ever.
