[SPAIN] There is nothing wrong with Lionel Messi's scoring touch. The Argentine star, scoreless in five games at the
World Cup, scored a hat trick to lead Barcelona to a 4-0 win over Sevilla and help it claim its first trophy of the season, the Spanish Super Cup.
The first goal in the 14th minute came when Pedro's cross rebounded in off defender Abdoulay Konko.
After that it was all Messi, scoring in the 255h, 44th and 90th minutes after being put through on passes from Xavi, Dani Alves and Andres Iniesta. Barca won, 5-3, on aggregate.
Barca coach Pep Guardiola said the win was just the beginning ...
“We still have much work in order to take shape," he said, "and even players like Xavi, [Andres] Iniesta and [Lionel] Messi have yet to reach their full potential.”
