Many football pundits would argue Lionel Messi still is the best player in the world. The reason is simple, he’s a decider in many games played. For instance, Argentina have only won a game without Leo in the 2018 World Cup Qualifier games but have won all three games Messi played in. The Argentine player have once again proven that he’s still the perfect finisher.
Leo came from the bench in the second half of the match against Deportivo la Coruna and just three minutes later, he recorded his goal for the game.
His goal against Depor makes him the fifth highest gaol scorer in La Liga history. The fact is that he doesn’t spend time on the bench which is quite surprising to see him among the top five of that category.
