    Until Messi does this, he always play 2nd fiddle to Maradona.....

    At the time it was quite incredible, but it's also dated.

    You could find street footballers who spend hours practicing tricks like that do it better than Diego. I remember the Brazilian national team applauding two such young chaps from London who did a trick demonstration prior to an international mostly because none of them could do something similar.

    And keep in mind that I consider him the second greatest player ever, it's not like I don't recognize his genius.

    David Beckham was better

    Lets bear in mind that he's essentially just cocking about, no massively rehearsed routine, not even bothered to do his boots up and can then go and actually perform on a pitch at the very, very highest level, which no trick "specialist" can

    Well that's me sucked down a rabbit hole of Maradona clips for a good quarter of an hour now. Thanks.

    With his laces undone and - if I'm any judge - a hefty whack of bugle inside him.
