120 INSANE Nutmegs by Lionel Messi – The Nutmeg KING!

Messi Nutmeg King

Just how many players has Messi nutmegged in his soccer career so far? Messi has scored 588 goals for his club and country, so it has to be higher than that number, right? Does Messi put the ball through someone’s legs in every game? If so, that would mean he’s nutmegged someone around times 700 times in his professional career, since he’s played at least that many games so far.

And then you might want to break it down to times Messi has nutmegged a player with a pass versus on the dribble. Either way, it’s clear that Messi is in fact the nutmeg king.

One of my favorite nutmegs in the excellent video below is Arturo Vidal at the 0:37 mark. Vidal is of course now a teammate of Messi at Barcelona. Don’t over commit and rush in when Messi has the ball at his feet, he’ll just make you look silly. Then there’s Thibaut Courtois who gets nutmegged three times by Messi: 12:22 , 12:27 , 12:50. Yes, Courtois is a goalkeeper.
