Argentina’s Lionel Messi Scores Second Career World Cup Goal During 2-1 Win Over Bosnia (Video)
The career of Lionel Messi has been an impressive one, but at the World Cup match between Argentina and Bosnia-Herzegovina he managed to add what was only the second World Cup goal of his professional life to his belt.
It was a gorgeous goal, working a perfect give-and-go with teammate Gonzalo Higuain before slotting a low shot off the far post and into the Bosnia-Herzegovina goal for the 2-0 Argentina lead.
In case you’re interested, Messi’s first World Cup goal was scored eight years ago in a match against Serbia, but as far as long waits in between goals go, this one was probably worth it, as Argentina went on to earn the victory over Bosnia by a score of 2-1.
