I have a feeling this Lionel Messi never dives series is going to have as many sequels as a comic book character in Hollywood. In other words there’s going to be a Part 3, 4, 5 and so on. In fact, it’s really not about diving, because Messi does get fouled, he just wants to keep playing. There’s no acting or simulation with Messi, it’s all about playing on.
It’s just not in Messi’s nature to dive or go down easily when he’s fouled or his jersey is pulled. Watch how Messi fights off a defender who tries to grab his jersey and then breaks free from another defender who tries to grab hold of him. And despite all this still manages to play a beautiful through ball to a teammate who nearly scores.
