‘Clueless’ American who’s never watched football reacts to Lionel Messi highlights

FC Barcelona v Real Sociedad - La Liga

Lionel Messi’s talents know no limits.

The Barcelona superstar is arguably the finest footballer to ever play the sport, his skills with the ball at his feet regularly rendering fans speechless.

Messi has reached superstar status on a global scale, with millions of ‘Messi’ shirts sold and his Instagram account boasting 150 million followers.

But there are still those who have never seen the Argentinian play.

Yes, we know. Those poor souls.

However, not everyone has an interest in football and the name ‘Messi’ will mean nothing to some.

This is where YouTuber Allure Vision comes into the situation.

She posted a video in 2018 reacting to Messi’s highlights, having never seen the Argentinian play before.

The video title describes her as ‘Clueless’.

“I don’t know anything at all about soccer,” she says in the intro. “I don’t know what he looks like, I don’t know anything.”


Allure Vision goes on to educate herself about Messi’s role, club and nationality before delving into his highlights.

Despite having watched no football before, it doesn’t take long for her to be impressed.

“It’s like riding a bike to him… like he does not look like he struggles to get this done,” she remarks at one point.

Enjoy the video below.

Fair play to Allure Vision for taking the time to sit and watch Messi.

By the looks of things, she thoroughly enjoyed herself.

Messi can have that affect on people. He looks pretty harmless at first glance, standing at 5 ft 7 in, but when he gets the ball he’s a complete nightmare.

However, don’t be fooled.

Former Liverpool and Real Madrid goalkeeper Jerzy Dudek recently revealed the Barcelona ace has a nasty streak.

“I saw Messi say such rude things to Pepe and [Sergio] Ramos that you would not imagine from such a quiet and seemingly good person,” Dudek wrote in his autobiography, per Marca.
