Barcelona were unusually poor, but their saviour Messi was as good as usual, and continues to bamboozle defences, driving Barcelona another inch towards the finish line.

Many Argentinans feel Messi doesn't have the same enthusiasm for worldwide soccer that he does for his club Barcelona.

No matter what your preference is when it comes to Lionel Messi's goal collection, we can all agree that we would all love to score a Messi-esque dink over the 'keeper - even if it was just the once. "We make decisions together and talk to him to see how he is like I do with others", he told a press conference.

'I would not have chosen the goal against Getafe, ' Messi told Olé.

"It became customary to say things about me".

"My son asked me 'why do they kill you in Argentina?'".

With global forward finished until the end of the season the 31 year old can go back to his club in the knowledge they could still complete a treble this season.

We Won’t See Netflix on Apple’s New Streaming Service
Hastings' confirmation follows experts' prediction that Netflix may not be included in Apple's TV service. But Bloomberg News reported last week that Netflix won't be part of the service.

The five-time Ballon D'Or victor said he doesn't need to say he loves Argentina "in every instant" because he expresses his passion for his home nation "in another way".

But Messi wasn't so jovial when discussing the topic of media coverage, particularly with regard to the Argentinian national team, where his performances have come under fire during big games and major tournaments in recent years.

"We have heard about this "club of friends" thing for years. I basically manage the whole AFA (Argentina's soccer association)", he ironically said.

While Messi has inspired Barcelona to domestic and European dominance during his glittering career, worldwide success has continued to elude him.

"I get upset that people are lied to", Messi said. But he dropped out of the squad for Tuesday's game in Morocco due to a groin problem that has been hampering him since Christmas.

The 31-year-old's return to the national side last week after an eight-month absence was marred by a humiliating 3-1 loss to Venezuela in a friendly.

All was not lost for players whose name is not Lionel Messi, though.
