Lionel Messi made his 100th appearance as Barcelona captain on Wednesday, then scored his 600th goal, and made the Internet weep for the one-millionth time.
La Pulga‘s goal put the finishing touches on a 3-0 UEFA Champions League semifinal first leg defeat of Liverpool with a spectacular free kick goal that someone went as far as to label the “Roberto Carlos versus France” goal of our generation.

Now, it’s not that incredible, but it sure is wonderful. And thanks to “Guy with a cell phone who films instead of watching” Jordi Trenzano Vilar, we’ve got a breath-taking angle of Messi’s near immaculate goal.
And the “Mes-si! Mes-si!” chants are the chef’s kiss of the fingers to it all.
Enjoy. And enjoy again. And again. Keep enjoying.
