It’s time for your weekly reminder that Leo Messi is something other than mortal. Messi scored the final goal in Barcelona’s 5-0 win over Cordoba this weekend, spinning a full 360 degrees to connect with Jordi Alba’s deflected cross, and use his centrifugal force to bring the ball with him. From there it’s just a simple squeeze inside the near post, and nothing but sympathy for Cordoba’s defenders.
