Messi is the best player in the world, and no matter how tall or short you are. Nothing can stop him when he gets going on the other side. Therefore, the Dutch could lob it as much as they wanted. But Messi’s magic could simply put an end to their hopes in the stands. Will van Gaal be forced to bring in Wout Weghorst and Luuk de Jong, who are both towering, bobbing heads?
