Lionel Messi made his comeback after World Cup duty by scoring twice in Barcelona’s 5-2 win against a K-League select in Seoul, South Korea.
The Argentina star had not played since his national team lost 4-0 to Germany in the quarter-finals of the World Cup in South Africa but scored two goals in three minutes at the end of the first half as Barcelona twice came from behind.
Choi Sung-Kuk put the Korean side ahead almost from kick-off, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic levelling five minutes afterwards.
Former Middlesbrough striker Lee Dong-Gook restored his side’s lead half an hour later before Messi struck twice to put the Liga champions 3-2 up at the break.
Jonathan Soriano and Victor Sanchez added late goals to complete Barca’s win.
