Video: Unbelievable fan’s-eye view of Messi Copa Del Rey goal

Copa load of that...

Lionel Messi’s goal in the Copa Del Rey final was good enough to inspire high-tech analysis from ESPN’s Sport Science, but we’ve found an even better way of watching it…

A Barcelona fan had a stunning pitch-side view of the mazy run and finish from the Argentinean, and caught it all on camera.

Television replays from the ‘perfect’ angle have their merits, but sometimes you can’t beat reliving a truly great goal from the viewpoint of the people who were there.

The footage captures both Messi’s dazzling quality and the pure euphoria that comes from being in amongst a group of supporters at one of the biggest games of their season.
