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.
The captain spoke for roughly 30 seconds and this apparently left some viewers shocked.
One fan tweeted: “First time seeing Messi leading the team talk.”
Another posted: “Messi giving a HT team talk?! Has to be a first.”
