Lionel Messi: While you were sleeping…

22 June 2016

...or sitting under the duvet with your iPad extrapolating performance data to work out whether there’s any possibility you can turn it on against Hungary later, Lionel Messi was doing this.

Argentina beat USA 4-0 in the Copa Armerica semi-final and will face either Colombia or Chile in the final on Sunday. In contrast, Cristiano Ronaldo’s Portugal will play their last group game in Euro 2016 today, with anything other than a win leaving them exposed to the possibility of an early exit.

But you shouldn’t compare yourself to other people. It’s not healthy.
