"I was really tough to be there in that moment" says Cortes, one of the Argentinian's victims
Ten years ago Leo Messi scored one of his best goals, maybe the best, in a Copa del Rey match against Getafe at Camp Nou.
How did Getafe's defenders lived that moment and tried to stop and unstoppable? Goal.com has spoken to them.
"I had the chance to make a foul but I thought it wasn't a good idea because it would have meant a yellow card. I could never imagine he was going to score in that way".
"I just want to say that when he nutmegged me, the ball touched my legs. It wasn't so perfect...".
"I was playing in the left wing but I tried to help Paredes".
"We were demanding our team-mates from the defence to try to stop him. I touched the ball a little bit... not enough".
"I was really tough to be there in that moment. But afterwards we have seen him doing things 1000 times better".
