If Vladimir Weiss’ dribbling exhibition was my fave goal of the first round of CL group play, then I’d have to say Messi’s free-kick golazo off the post against Ajax was my second favorite. Precision, personified. Barca went on to win 4-0, and after the match there was a bit of debate on FOX Soccer as to whether Messi’s or Ronaldo’s Day 1 CL hat-trick was more impressive. To my thinking, it was Messi by a landslide.
