World's greatest star in latest episode of adidas Gamedayplus
Herzogenaurach, Monday 19th October – The greatest player in the history of the game, the world's best goalkeeper, the champions of Greece and the creator of arguably the best assist in the world this season star in the third episode of adidas Gamedayplus, which launched today.
Leo Messi, the outstanding performer of 2015, has been celebrated this year by being made the first player to receive his very own boot, the Messi15. In this episode, Messi answers questions crowd-sourced from the Team Messi Facebook community.
Next to feature is the world's greatest goalkeeper and the man who both saves and scores penalties under pressure, Manuel Neuer, who tells adidas Gamedayplus the secret behind a perfect spot kick.
Greek champions Olympiacos FC then play host to adidas Gamedayplus on their training ground, with a striking masterclass from Kostas Fortounis and Brown Ideye. The Greek attacking midfielder and Nigerian striker show exactly what you need to do when clear through on goal.
Finally, it's the turn of Juan Mata, who lit up the last round in the UEFA Champions League with a glorious assist versus Wolfsburg. Gamedayplus asks the Manchester United playmaker "what's in his locker" as he shows off a series of tricks played out in slow motion.
