A moment of beauty struck yesterday evening at El Calderon stadium that featured top teams Barcelona and Athletico Madrid from La Liga playing it out in the first leg of La Copa Del Rey. That being said, you don’t need to know anything about either teams to appreciate these moments of absolute bliss from Bacerlona’s Luis Saurez and Lionel Messi. Ladies and Gentleman, I would like for you to sit down and enjoy The Southern Tip Show.

That was Suarez making a brilliant run and finishing with finesse. It would make any Uruguayan proud to know such beauty was produced in the lands of South America.

If you were impressed by Suarez’s individual run, Messi’s goal from outside the box was equally impressive. It was a statement piece similar to when people usually buy a statement watch or statement tie. This was a statement goal.

Lastly, Saurez and Messi only balled out because of the highlighter celeste and yellow jerseys, the colors of the countries both players are from.
