Lionel Messi, arguably the greatest footballer of all time, his resilient and athleticism on the ball makes him almost impossible to knock off the ball.
He’s won plenty of physical challenges against much bigger player. But he can also call on a deceptively formidable shot, especially on his left foot. With very little back lift, he can generate plenty of power.
Messi cut inside off the right wing toward the top of the box and unleashed an explosive left-foot effort that flew over the crossbar and kept rising.
A female fan stuck up an arm to protect herself, and the ball struck with enough force to break it. Video after shows her in noticeable pain, and she seems to go into a kind of shock while trying to leave her seat to get medical attention.
It’s an issue more commonly associated with baseball or hockey, but be warned: Catching a soccer game from the stands can also be dangerous.
