Lionel Messi has been used to these kinds of tackles all his life. For someone who is a nimble dribbler as he is, getting tackled is just second nature to him. In the game against Panama, he faced a horror challenge from two of Panama’s players, both at the same time.
Dilanggar dengan tackle horror (dua kaki, telapak kaki terbuka), kakinya berdarah-darah, namun dalam sepersekian detik sudah bangkit kembali, tanpa ada perawatan medis sedikit pun (bahkan hampir mencetak gol)🤯😱

Messi went down clutching his knee and it looked like a really bad one. On close inspection, you could also see there his knee was bleeding due to the impact of the collision with both players. Messi was down for a while and that was quite a scare. Luckily though, he got up soon after and everyone could breathe a sigh of relief.

Messi had no problems or discomfort after the tackle too. He went on to score in the 89th minute of the game and also notched up 800 career goals, which is a feat only managed by Cristiano Ronaldo so far. Messi also has 98 goals for Argentina and would be looking for two more goals to turn it into a century in their next clash.
