Some controversy around this selection, but it is hard to dispute. Messi draws more attention from defenders than any player and still gets allot done. One v one is impossible. So while he did not win the Cup for Argentina he put on a show every match and had us all holding our breath when he had the ball anywhere on the field. Robben, Rodriguez, Muller and the Argentine defender Mascherano should be in the running. Tough selection…just leave it at that. Thanks for the entertainment LM

(Bloomberg) — Lionel Messi broke Barcelona’s all- time scoring record by
getting the second and third goals in his team’s match against Granada in
Spain’s La Liga today.
Messi, who was
named soccer’s best player for the third straight year in January, tied the
mark of 232 official goals set by Cesar Rodriguez during the 1940s and 50s in
the 17th minute and secured the record outright in the 68th minute when he
lobbed the ball over Granada goalkeeper Julio Cesar.
