Argentine star Lionel Messi, currently at the centre of an Olympic Games club-or-country row, hit a hat-trick in Barcelona’s 5-1 pre-season friendly win over Scotland’s Dundee United on Saturday.

Messi found the target in the 51st, 75th and 78th minutes while Thierry Henry (26) and Samuel Eto’o (60) added to the scoreline after the Scots had taken a shock lead.

Barcelona insist that Messi cannot play in the Beijing Olympics as he’s wanted for the club’s opening Champions League qualifier.

Messi is a star in the making. His goal scoring ability is superb. I think the club should allow his go for the Olympics cos playing for ones country is a prestige. The club can replace him. ASHIOMA Junior Medi from Nigeria
