    Gorgeous indeed!

    I can imagine the emotion of the people in their seats, as he
    advances, and the excitement, and it is a matter of seconds but in
    their hearts they start feeling 'please put it in', and at some point
    does not matter the team at all but just that such a huge display
    of football is crowned by the goal, and... and... damn, I love this sport.

    I saw the goal last night and it was pretty fantastic but am I (as a football layman) being ridiculous is suggesting that the goal by Zlatan Ibrahimovic (hopefully you guys know what I am talking about) a few years back was much more impressive?

    The sports journalist on the CBC stated the Messi goal may be the best goal since the 'Hand of God'.

    Ouch, Ibrahimovic's goal is a legend as well, IMO, and much more
    coming from a national of a country that does not produce such
    fantastic players as Argentina.

    But I think that Messi is better than Ibra's for one single, stupid
    reason: Due to nationality and astonishing similarity with Maradona's
    goal (which is famous worldwide), it's the obligated comparison.

    Don't know what other newspapers are saying, but the poll in
    www.marca.es is impressive (readers' response and debate).

    None of those goals compare to the one Paulo Wanchope scored against Man Ure.

    No way. Giggsy's goal in '99 was waaaay better.

    None of both. Wanchope dribbles 'nobody' and he is quite a brick when
    moving.

    Giggs final kick is just too violent. Goal is nice, but not with
    the elegance of a ballerina.

    In form, I'd say that Ibrahimovic's goal is probably the best I've ever seen. Maradona's goal, however, it's still the one I'd name as (probably) the best. Not only it's at least as brilliant as Messi's, it's also scored in a World Cup semi-final.

    Edit: That we're even discussing this is a testament of how good Messi's goal is...
