In the 28th minute of today’s game against Nice, Messi turned back the years with an amazing performance.

After Neymar’s dummy run, the 35-year-old stroked a shot into the top corner.

Such was his accuracy that former Leicester star Schmeichel barely moved as he flew past him.

Neymar, 30, jumped into Messi’s arms as he celebrated the incredible goal.

Kylian Mbappe, watching from the substitutes’ bench, also smiled.

The Frenchman was granted a rest by boss Christophe Galtier while former Newcastle target Hugo Ekitike received a go-ahead.

Schmeichel wasn’t the only ex-Prem player in a Nice starting lineup that was brimming in front of them.

Mario Lemina, Aaron Ramsey and Ross Barkley all lined up for the underdogs as they took on last year’s champions.

Arsenal loanee Nicolas Pepe stayed on the bench, as did ex-Wigan flop Andy Delort.

Messi seems to have put the talk of leaving PSG behind him after reports that Xavi wanted to bring his pal back to Catalonia in August.

He started the season with a bang, scoring seven goals and providing eight assists in just 11 games.
