Is there a human goalkeeper out there capable of consistently blocking the goal-seeking missiles of Lionel Messi? Probably not, and definitely not if he’s taking them all as penalties.

It takes him a while, but on the final attempt Messi manages to send the robot the wrong way, just long enough for him to slot the ball into the bottom left corner of the net.
