Lionel Messi conducted his very own half-time team talk during Argentina’s World CupGroup D clash against Nigeria – and it left fans shocked.

The five-time Ballon d’Or winner lead by example when he tucked away a stunning finish in the first half.

The Barcelona forward latched on to a long Ever Banega ball, brilliantly bringing it down before smashing it in with his right foot.

Argentina, who needed a win to reach the last-16, entered the break 1-0 up. As the stars made their way back out onto the pitch, Messi stopped his team-mates to give a quick team talk.
