Lionel Messi is in his 30s but age has not bothered the superstar in terms of his dedication towards the game. The Argentine changed his playing style as the years went by but one thing still remains constant: Leo Messi's lethal dribbling. No defender has a proper answer to stop Messi when he decides to get past them. The latest display of the superstar's brilliance was seen during Argentina's friendly clash against Uruguay on November 19, 2019. Messi managed to dribble past five Uruguay players even after falling to the ground once.
Messi received the ball some 40-yards away from Uruguay's box and the Argentine danced his way towards the goal and lost his balance. He faced the ground mid-way. However, the 32-year-old somehow managed to get back on his feet and cruise past two more defenders before passing the ball to his teammate. It was just another impeccable effort from the greatest of the game and it was proof that he still has a lot to offer to his club, to his country and to his thousands of fans across the globe.
It gets better every time you watch it:
