Messi took just five minutes to open the scoring in 15 goal charity game last night

A Lionel Messi XI took on a Rest of the World selection in a charity game and it took the main man just five minutes to open his account.

The Barcelona superstar saw his team emerge 9-6 winners in the glamour friendly and as you can see from the opening goal, the defending was a charitable as the game itself, with a neat finish from the Argentinean in front of supporters in Medellin, Colombia.

Some other familiar faces included Javier Mascherano, Pablo Aimar, Florent Malouda and Julio Baptista. What Rest of the World selection would be complete without the Beast?
