Lionel Messi and Javier Mascherano play basketball like seals

Dirty Tackle

Because football is pretty easy for them, Barcelona had a basketball hoop at their Friday training session. And since Lionel Messi can't dunk, he and Javier Mascherano demonstrated how to score a basket using only their heads. Something their teammates had a bit of trouble attempting to do themselves.

Barcelona's official YouTube account goes a little far in labeling the clip "SPECTACULAR." It would've been if Dikembe Mutombo appeared out of nowhere to block Messi's shot and said, "Not in my house! Hahahahaha!"
