Barcelona football star Lionel Messi vs robot goalkeeper

Barcelona football star Lionel Messi is very good at making sure the ball goes into the net, but this time round when he went up against a whole new breed of goalkeeper it was hard to believe he had met his match.

Lionel Messi is the Argentine footballer who plays for La Liga club FC Barcelona as a forward and for the for Argentina national team.

His salary is estimated at around 14.75 million USD and has won many awards such as the FIFA World Player of the Year and FIFA Ballon d’Or, so you would think that he could get a ball in the goal.

Messi put his ball on the penalty spot and took his chances with a new Japanese robot goalkeeper; out of three penalties against the robot can you guess how many goals he scored?

The YouTube video below was posted by C. Ronaldo, the video was part of a Japanese game show and we loved the way the remote controlled robotic goalkeeper moved and how quick the responses were.

Please watch the video below of the 25 year old taking penalties against a cardboard robot that has gained 370,227 views.
