Messi is Back with New Hairstyle


Spanish giants Barcelona have thrashed Leicester City 4-2 in the International Champions Cup at Stockholm's Friends Arena.

Perhaps the best news to come out of these summer friendlies for Barcelona is that their star man Lionel Messi is back on track and playing at a high level again.
The Catalans took the lead after just 26 minutes on Wednesday through Munir El Haddadi who cut in behind Leicester’s defense to latch onto Leonel Messi's pass and score, making it 1-0

8 minutes later, Barca doubled their advantage when Luis Suarez knocked the ball in with the outside of his foot from an acute angle.

Munir then scored his second of the day, seconds before halftime to give his side a commanding 3-0 lead.The Foxes however, managed to pull one back after the restart when Ahmed Musa powered past the Barcelona defense from inside, before slipping an effort into the bottom corner to make it 3-1.

The Nigerian international then cut the deficit to a single goal midway through the second half by rifling in a shot into the roof of the net.

But, the Catalans made it 4-2 in the 84th minute when Leicester's defense was unlocked and 17-year-old Rafa Mokhica smashed the ball into the top corner in what proved to be the last goal in an entertaining 4-2 win.Messi played well in the first International Champions Cup game against Celtic in Dublin and then provided two assists against the Premier League champions in Stockholm.The 29-year-old has not scored yet in either game, somewhat of a drought for a player of his calibre, but the most important thing right now is that he is fit for the Supercopa de Espana against Sevilla on August 12.
