Lionel Messi has named the best goalkeeping performance he’s ever seen

Most goalkeepers Messi has come up against have been unable to thwart him and back in 2020, Budweiser sent out bottles of beer to 144 different shotstoppers who conceded against him while he was at Barcelona.

Fraser Forster was one of those recipients, having conceded once to him in the 2-1 win over the Blaugrana back in 2012 at Celtic Park.

He was also in goal for the reverse fixture, which ended 2-1 to Barca after Jordi Alba’s late goal.

But Forster’s heroics in between the sticks made a huge impression on the seven-time Ballon d’Or winner, who claimed that he was even a target for the Catalan side at one point.
