Five Irishmen from Derry were there at Camp Nou when Leo Messi became FC Barcelona's most prolific ever scorer. I know because I was there standing beside them behind the south goal.
These grown men were awe-struck. "I can't believe I'm seeing him in the flesh. I can almost reach out and touch him," said Joe. "Messi is unbelievable. Ask Marty here who played with Derry City with Paddy McCourt." This last comment was delivered without irony. Marty himself was lost for words at Messi's performance, which is something for a Derry man.
