Lionel Messi Hits Bicycle Kick in Argentina Training Ahead of World Cup Final

BR-UK StaffAnalyst IIIJuly 12, 2014

Lionel Messi is facing the biggest game of his life on Sunday, as Argentina take on Germany in the World Cup Final. And while nerves will undoubtedly play a part in the match, Messi and his teammates look pretty loose for now.

Above is a video apparently taken from Argentina training on Saturday. It's not the best angle on the action imaginable, but that's very clearly Messi attempting a vicious overhead kick. Now we can only hope he attempts the same on Sunday.
