Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni has compared Lionel Messi to Rafael Nadal. The PSG superstar ended the frustrations of a dismal club season by helping La Albiceleste win the Finalissima earlier this month. The 34-year-old led the show against Italy, setting up two goals to help his side win 3-0.

Messi then made easy work of Estonia, scoring all five goals in Argentina’s 5-0 win on Sunday. The seven-time Ballon d’Or winner started with an eighth-minute penalty to put his team ahead. He then scored in the 45th, 47th, 71st and 76th minutes to round off a memorable evening.
