Lionel Messi has been in fine form on the training ground, following up his cheeky nutmeg on partner-in-crime Luis SuA?rez with another effortless piece of skill baffling compatriot Javier Mascherano


The Argentine’s skills with the ball are superior to any other player in the world, as several of his teammates have found out on the training pitch. Messi, who only recently pulled off a filthy nutmeg against his Uruguayan teammate, turned his attention to former Liverpool FC midfielder Javier Mascherano.

During a game of keep-ball at a recent FC Barcelona training session, Messi received the ball and taking a quick touch, calmly slotted the ball between the legs of the bamboozled Mascherano.
