Marcelo and Brazil’s ‘anti-Messi’ wall

14 Nov 2016

Brazil used an interesting tactic in their World Cup qualifier against Argentina on Thursday night when they set up an ‘anti-Messi’ wall as Lionel Messi was preparing to take a free-kick.

In order to prevent the 29-year-old from hitting a shot underneath the jumping Brazilian wall, left-back Marcelo knelt down behind his yellow-shirted colleagues.
