Footage has surfaced of Lionel Messi scoring a goal from behind the goal posts as the Argentina international prepares for his Barcelona return.

The superstar missed the last part of 2013 to recover from a hamstring injury but appears to be closing in on full health—and it doesn't look like the swagger disappeared in the last few months.

According to the Barcelona website, Messi flies back to Spain today, and his first-team return could follow early in the new year.
