As the game entered extra time, both teams knew that a single mistake could cost them the game. The match looked destined to end in a draw, but then Lionel Messi stepped up to take a free kick just outside the box. Messi had been brought on as a substitute in the second half and was yet to make a significant impact on the game.
However, he had other ideas. With just seconds remaining on the clock, Messi struck the ball with incredible power and accuracy, sending it flying past the Cruz Azul goalkeeper and into the top corner of the net.
The stadium erupted in celebration as Messi ran towards the fans, arms aloft, to celebrate his incredible debut Golazo goal. The camera would pan to show David Beckham crying in tears of joy at what he just witnessed.
