Picture Of The Day: They’ll Do Anything To Stop Lionel Messi
How do you slow down Lionel Messi? Nigeria and South Korea tried just about everything in their power, from vicious slide tackles, to grabbing his jersey, but their efforts were largely unsuccessful as the man they call “The Flea” has terrorized defenses through the opening round of the 2010 FIFA World Cup.
However, on Tuesday it appeared as though the Greeks had figured out the perfect way to contain Messi. If grabbing his jersey doesn’t work, try grabbing a hold of something else!
Their strategy seemed to be working as they held Argentina to a nil-nil draw after 75 minutes, but in the 76th minute Messi, and his manhood, were able to escape the suffocating grip of the Greeks as he set up both goals in a 2-0 victory. Now we must wait to see what type of strategy Mexico can come up with as they try to stop the world’s best footballer.
