On this day 11 years ago, messi's favorite goal ever!

On this day 11 years ago, Messi scored this iconic header to secure Barcelona their 3rd Champions League trophy against Manchester United. Messi considers this goal as his favourite goal ever!

Messi is often criticized that he can’t score headers. Heret he’s a 1,70 cm guy who scored a header against 1,90 cm Ferdinand and 1,90 cm Vidic with an almost 2 m van der Sar in goal.


Rio Ferdinand experienced “the most embarrassing night of his life” against Lionel Messi in the Champions League.


Messi has scored more than 600 goals for Barcelona but picked out a header in 2009 Champions League Final as his favourite of them all.

"My favourite goals are more than just attractive; they are important,"

"It was in the Champions League final and helped us to close the circle with Guardiola and win the triplete, which we had never done.

"That goal rounded up a spectacular game."

Barca clinched a LaLiga, Copa del Rey and Champions League treble for the first time.
