This Messi goal for Barcelona v Real Madrid is the best El Clasico goal ever

El Clasico is always hotly contested between Barcelona against Real Madrid. But who has scored the greatest ever goal in the world’s most exciting football match? 

Neil Ashton, chief football reporter at The Sun and presenter of the Sunday Supplement, chose this Lionel Messi beauty as his favourite goal in his Favourite Football Shirt interview.

My favourite goal has to be Lionel Messi’s extraordinary effort in the Bernabeu in 2011, when he latched on to the ball just inside the Real Madrid half and danced through their defence before putting Iker Casillas on the floor and rolling the ball into the far corner with high right foot. It was an absolute beaut.

The picture of Messi celebrating and the Real Madrid players thinking, er what just happened is brilliant.
