|Yes, Messi knows how to play defense. Who said Lionel Messi can’t or won’t play defense? Look how the Barcelona magician tracks back and wins the soccer ball. It’s just that Messi knows when to run and when to walk. When to converge on a player to force them to make a pass|
I love how the crowd cheers Messi’s effort. It almost like they’re cheering more for his hustling back than they would if he scored a hat trick. Messi’s work rate isn’t talked about enough. He’s very good at picking the times to pressure and the times when he needs to sneak away and find open spaces to receive the ball.
