Lionel Messi scored two goals against Peru on Tuesday night but it was not only his shooting skills that got fans off their seats in Lima.
Messi also showcased why he is still one of the top dribblers in world soccer.
The Argentina captain toyed with Peru left-back Yoshimar Yotun during the first half.
One sequence of play saw Messi twist and turn with the ball at his feet to evade Yotun four times in just five seconds.

Despite the defender’s best efforts, he was unable to tackle – or even foul – Messi, who eventually sprinted away down the right wing, leaving Yotun on the floor.
Argentina won the game 2-0.
