Messi Inspires Ireland To Carling Nations Cup Glory

Messi Inspires Ireland To Carling Nations Cup Glory
By Donny Mahoney Updated

Robbie Keane is now one goal shy of 50 following Ireland's 1-0 win over Scotland in the Carling Nations Cup, but the real star for Ireland was Kilpedder man Leo Messi, who created Ireland's goal with a deft tackle, marauding run and deft flick to his captain. Were Keane a little less selfish, he might have flicked back to Messi who would have unleashed a piledriver into the top corner of the net. After the goal, Keane unleashed a Rooney-esque 'Crucified Christ' celebratory pose, while most of the Ireland team celebrated with Messi. Thankfully, the cup awarding celebrations were far more muted.
