Has Lionel Messi perfected the free-kick?

Messi the Magician

Lionel Messi is either the best player in the world or a magician. You decide. If it’s the latter then he’s the best magician in the world. The forward displayed his magical ability last night when Argentina beat Colombia 3-0 in a World Cup Qualifier. Messi was in tremendous form and opened the scoring with an unstoppable free-kick.

Set-piece specialist

It was as fine a free-kick as anyone could hope to score. The ball travelled at a wicked speed and kissed the crossbar on the way in. But this was no fluke. This was the end product of hundreds of hours of practice.

Has Messi perfected the free-kick? The video below would suggest that he has. Recorded before the big game in the Estadio San Juan del Bicentenario, the Barcelona hero hits the EXACT same free-kick that he would later score.
