Official NUFC account troll Lionel Messi after Miguel Almiron’s moment of magic in Brazil

“A football genius and Lionel Messi…” – The message NUFC’s official account posted on Twitter after Miguel Almiron stole the show and outshone the Argentinian during Paraguay’s Copa America clash last night.

Not only did Almiron bag a stunning assist, skinning two players and carrying the ball 70-yards before crossing, he was named Man of the Match, with him stealing the show in Brazil ahead of Barcelona star Lionel Messi.

Here’s what the club’s official Twitter account posted after Almiron’s outstanding display last night:

A brilliant tweet from the club’s Twitter account – which makes a change after a summer of silence and uncertainty so far.

It may seem like a small consolation when Rafa’s future is STILL so up in the air, but Almiron’s form is at least something to keep us feeling excited ahead of the new season.

Just look at this assist:

The 25-year-old bagged an assist in his opening Copa America clash with Qatar, and he was at it again vs Argentina, with him being one of the stand-out players of the tournament so far in Brazil.
