    “Is one of the most remarkable European comebacks of recent years now on?”

    You answered “yes” – you did, of course, mean “no”.

    Otherwise, good report. It really was quite the display of dominance. It is still extraordinary how close Messi (and Ronaldo) came to not being in South Africa…

    Quite right, David. Eyes getting ahead of my brain, there.

    What a wonderful example Messi is to young footballers everywhere who far too often have the type of instinct he possesses coached out of them.

    Never be afraid to have a go – Leo isn’t!

    Personally I was dissapointed to read many an Arsenal fan questioning Messi’s claim to fame as the worlds best player (right now) after the first tie at Emirates.

    He played a different game that night and made space for Ibrahimovic. Today was all about getting the ball to Messi and he did the rest.

    Case closed.

    One of the best performances from a single player, exceptional. I look forward to seeing more of him in South Africa, hopefully though not against England!!

    Great Report, cheers
