Typical Goalkeeper Reaction to Messi

102 0

 


Don’t feel bad Malaga goalkeeper, this happens to all the goalkeepers in La Liga who face off versus Lionel Messi. It’s common to want to bury your head in the ground and not get up. Don’t worry, it’s going to be all right. The game will end in 90 minutes and you won’t have to face Messi again for quite a while.

Yes, your own defender made a terrible back pass and Messi picked it up and then embarrassed you by making you fall down. It’s alright though, don’t cry. No, don’t start. Wipe that tear off your cheek. Get up, brush yourself off and continue the soccer/football game.. You can do it. That’s it, good, good. Keep your head up. Yes, blame your defender because in this case it was actually and truly his fault.

Here’s the goal if you want to see it. Yeah, you can’t blame the keeper on this one. I’m sure you could gather together a hundred photos of goalkeepers on the ground with their heads in the grass not wanting to get up and pick the ball out of the net once again because Messi scored on them.

Goalkeepers searching for soccer ball. Shocked by the great Lionel Messi.
