Football superstar Lionel Messi grabbed the attention of the fans once again as his long-ranger screamer against Troyes in a Ligue 1 game on Saturday sent Twitter into frenzy. Football buffs across the globe just can’t get over the Argentine footballer’s left-footed wonder goal.

Paris Sant-Germain were already trailing by 2-1 in the game. The former Barcelona player picked up the loose ball from Sergio Ramos from at least 27-30 yards from goal and placed an unstoppable shot towards the keeper’s right flank to strike the equalizer in the 55th minute.

Subsequently, PSG went onto win the match 4-3. The French Champions extended their lead at the top of the table to 35 points, five above second placed Lens.

Messi has finally found his mojo back in the ongoing 2022-23 season after a poor run of form in his debut season in France. So far, he has scored a total of 12 goals in 17 matches in all competitions along with 13 assists.

With FIFA World Cup 2022 in Qatar just less than a month away, Messi’s form would be crucial for Argentina’s chances in the mega event.

“WHAT A GOAL-LIONEL MESSI,” a fan tweeted reacting to Messi’s goal.

“Lionel Messi with a Bearing from outright. That’s Fantastic Goal from the GOAT,” another fan commented.
