Im just watching Barcelona Vs Getafe on Sky Sports 1 in the Copa Del Ray Semi Final, and all I can say is WOW, Lionel Messi's goal was amazing, it was out of this world, shades of Maradona for sure! If you have Sky Sports, flick over to SS1 now, its worth the wait to see it (the match is nearly finished).

Anyone else see it? Im sure it should be on Sky Sports News or Eurosport 2 in the next day or so its breathtaking. Its hard to believe the lad is still only 19 years old!!

The easiest way to describe it is think of Michael Owen's famous goal against Barcelona in 1998 - well its very similar to that, but even better.

Even the commentators were saying there has not be a goal of the same standard in probably the last few years at least. Its just magical!

Its not on Youtube as yet, but as soon as its on I will embed it onto this thread.

Feck it im recording the rest of the match on the Sky+ (I tried to use instant rewind but i must have changed channel or summit as it didnt go very far back) and hopefully will get it in the highlights using me digital camera.

I should have it online (YouTube) some time in the next couple of hours.

Well due to YouTube running like absolute crap, (come on Google, you never heard of redundancy??) ive had to Upload it to my own server for now.

You can download it at [url=www.xcellweb.net/videos]www.xcellweb.net/videos[/url], just right click on "messi wondergoal.MOV" and select "save target as" in Internet Explorer or "save link as" in Mozilla Firefox.

It plays fine in VLC Media Player and as its a MOV file, it will play in Apple Quicktime Player too.

I will get it up on YouTube as soon as Google pull their fingers out of their arses and sort their servers out.

You will be blown away by this goal, all the commentators and pundits were saying its one of the greatest goals of all time, if not the greatest.

thumbsup

PS. Just noticed I put Owens goal against Barcelona in the first post, it was against Argentina lmao too much Barca and Argie on my mind after that goal smack
