'Messi' for a reason : Football world praises Lionel Messi's act towards Suarez

Messi, Lionel Messi, Football

Barcelona put on a show as they thrashed Huesca 8-2 on Sunday evening. More over, Lional Messi had the chance to score his La Liga hat-trick when Barcelona was awarded with a penalty.

The five time Ballon d'Or winner struck twice in the match but let Suarez take the penalty, which something you wouldn't always expect Neymar or Cristiano Ronaldo to do.

It's yet another selfless act from Messi, who has showed how a proper captain deals with these types of situations on a number of occasions. A lot of people have applauded his act on social media.

Would Cristiano Ronaldo have passed up the chance to score a hat trick to help a teammate ? The question sure did a few rounds on the social media last night.
