Messi strikes his effort across goal with the ball bouncing off the post via the slightest of touches from Uzoho before Nigeria scramble clear. Di Maria left Leon Balogun for pace, leading to the defender tripping the PSG midfielder right on the edge of the box in a desperate lunge. A covering defender protects him from a red card as he is booked, but could worse damage be on the way as Messi stands over the yard free-kick? Messi is involved again as this time he plays Gonzalo Higuain into the box, but Francis Uzoho is quick off his line to narrow the angle and block the Juventus striker - collecting a kick in the face for his troubles. After a spell of treatment, he is ok to continue.
