Lionel-Messi

The best footballer of his generation, Lionel Messi, does not miss a lot of chances.

The Argentine attacker’s skills were put to test by the Japanese who decided to put a gigantic inflatable robot in goal while the Barcelona star was taking penalties.

Although he has had his fair share of bad luck with penalties over the years, Messi was not going to be beaten in this.

Below is the video that shows Messi is not only beating the mere mortals with ease, he is taking the fight to the ultra-efficient robots as well.

Here is the video of Messi’s unbelievable penalty kick to beat the monstrous robot covering the entire goal.

If you fancy a longer video, here is the entire show with Messi demonstrating some of his skills, the Barcelona star practicing his shots and some horse riding antics.
