It is, of course, astonishing how many goals Lionel Messi has scored for Barcelona.

But perhaps just as incredible is the fact so many of his goals are stunners.

The Argentina international has made a habit of embarrassing La Liga's best goalkeepers on an almost weekly basis with his unparalleled skills, along with European goalkeepers when he comes up against them in the Champions League.

Now, one YouTube user - 5000LOVEMESSI - has kindly uploaded many of the magical moments when Messi has left a goalkeeper dumbfounded before celebrating yet another goal. Eight minutes and 25 seconds worth, in fact.

Sometimes it's easy to take for granted just how special a talent Messi truly is.

The four-time Ballon d'Or winner seems to do this sort of stuff every time he takes to the pitch - and we expect it of him.

But it won't last forever - goalkeepers will be relieved to hear - and we should all appreciate being able to watch the world's best player produce these magical moments before he calls time on his career.
