First World Cup Goal
We’ve spoken about Messi’s first international goal already. But there’s a huge difference between scoring in a friendly and a World Cup. The Argentine star traveled to Germany with his nation in 2006. He scored his first World Cup goal against Serbia & Montenegro in a stunning cameo (via The 18).
The 18-year-old only had 15 minutes to make an impact but he dazzled the fans. He got an assist as well as his goal as he showed off his bag of tricks. This short appearance received a lot of attention because he demonstrated maturity beyond his years. Meanwhile, Diego Maradona loved the moment from the crowd.
