moment to remember
Comparisons with Maradona seemed apt when Messi scored a stunning goal in a Copa del Rey against Getafe in April 2007. Messi ran more than half the length of the field and beat six players before netting the ball into the net from a tight angle. after seeing that kind of an ability on a football pitch, all one could remember is the famous Maradona's goal from the 1986 World Cup quarterfinals against England.

moment to forget
Messi endured a miserable debut for Argentina when he was red carded against Hungary in Budapest just 2 minutes after coming off the bench. He was adjudged to have elbowed Vilmos Vanczak and left the field in tears.
