Comparisons between Lionel Messi and Diego Maradona are regularly made and people have even created a couple of photoshops of them as pope. But never have they seemed so similar than after Messi's opening goal against Milan on Tuesday. The build up play and finish for Messi's goal is almost identical to the screamer Maradona scored at the World Cup in 1994.
This isn't the first time people have compared there goals. The long mazy run that Maradona scored off against England in 1986 was almost exactly replicated by Messi years later.
