What is there to be said about Lionel Messi that hasn't already been mentioned? The best in the world, one in a million, the best ever. The praise is endless.

The Barcelona superstar is on course to win his fifth Ballon d'Or during January's ceremony and has been on top form since returning to action following a knee injury. 

Luis Enrique's side may have conceded two goals in the last 15 minutes to surprisingly drop two points at home to Deportivo La Coruna - their third successive draw in all competitions - but Messi's sumptuous free-kick was his sixth goal in as many appearances since his return.

Level on points with Atletico Madrid and five ahead of Real, the Blaugrana have a break from La Liga action as they are in Japan for the FIFA Club World Cup. (scroll down to see the video of Messi's incredible accuracy)

The Catalan giants face Guangzhou Evergrande in the semi-final on 17 December before a possible final with either Sanfrecce Hiroshima or River Plate.

And in their first training session since landing in Japan, Messi produced a moment of magic that delighted the fans in attendance. 

Stood just outside the penalty area with a number of his teammates, Messi takes aim at a small training goal situated on the halfway line.

Unsurprisingly, he found the target with ease, sending the supporters into rapturous cheers. His teammates were also impressed.

With Barcelona top of the league, still in the Copa del Rey and in the final 16 of the Champions League, the Club World Cup offers them the chance to go one better than last season and record a quadruple in this campaign.
