Fifty footballing heavyweights entered the ring for the eighth edition of the global prize but it was the fleet-footed Argentine who danced his way to victory
Yes, that’s right, the Goal 50 Royal Rumble for 2015 is over. After a titanic tussle between the sport’s greatest heavyweights, it is Lionel ‘La Pulga’ Messi who landed the final knockout blow.
The likes of Manuel ‘Madman’ Neuer, Arturo ‘Thunder’ Vidal, Carlos ‘Lights Out’ Tevez, Luis ‘The Shark’ Suarez and the 2014 champion, Cristiano ‘Right-Hook’ Ronaldo, all took to the ring along with Messi.
But it was the Argentine assassin who proved too strong as he claimed a record fourth Goal 50 of his career. Float like a butterfly, sting like a flea!
