Argentine footballer Lionel Messi has made his Major League Soccer against NY Red Bulls and his pass to set up his goal has left commentators and spectators in awe of his brilliance.

Messi, who plays for Inter Miami, and his former Barcelona teammate Sergio Busquets started to play after 59 minutes of the game.

Messi’s side already had an edge over the Bulls but the second goal in the second last minute of the game sealed their victory.

One of the commentators described the pass as one of “ridiculous” he had ever seen as Messi had taken the ball from Jordi Alba who managed to save the ball after a long pass.

Messi as his fans call him GOAT – initials of the Greatest Player of All Time – took the ball flipped the ball and made the pass from three defenders.

The ball went to Benjamin Cremaschi who ran from the far side and again flipped the ball to Messi who with a soft touch made the difficult goal look so easy.

His first official MLS goal sealed three points for Inter Miami.
