But Messi's night came to a premature end when he suffered a right hamstring injury and failed to emerge for the second half.
Sam Rosen's insight:

This happens every so often. A great player gets a small injury, but the coach doesn't want to risk it getting any worse so they take the player out. This may result in a momentum change. The other team may start to get the edge due to the invulnerability of the team that lost their star player. In this case, it resulted in, instead of a win for FC Barcelona, a draw between the two teams. this may have been because Messi got a injury.

The Ronaldinho Show

Ronaldinho
Sam Rosen's insight:

This video represents the skill of the legendary Ronaldhino. He was on FC Barcelona and was a threat in every game he played. He was the person that taught the new legend, Lionel Messi. Ronaldhino showed his passion through always playing the sport everywhere he went. He enjoyed being outside and playing with a ball when he wasn't on the field in a game or in practice. He is a perfect legend.

Sam Rosen's insight:

A master of the sport, and a gift from Argentina to the world, Lionel Messi has changed the sport forever. Messi has given the kids who gave up on their dreams of being a soccer player a reason to keep believing and keep trying and to never ever give up. Messi and Ronaldo are the two players who can do it all. They both score a lot. They both are fast. they both greatly known and are becoming legends. Though, Messi has become the best known and is getting more attention than any other player, even more than Ronaldo. Messi is most definitly the greatest of all the players playing currently.
