Checkout Ex-PSL Star Stopping Lionel Messi [See Pics]

It is always a good sight to see a player who used to play in the PSL taking on the best talents in the world, coming up against the most celebrated names in the current Era of global football. 

It was surely a good sight to see former Orlando Pirates player Marshal Munetsi taking on World superstar Lionel Messi when his Reims side met with PSG in the French Lig 1.

Messi made his debut from the bench as he started the game outside, waiting to make his much anticipated debut for the French Giants since joining from FC Barcelona. 

With the French giants two goals ahead when he was introduced, Messi seemed to want to get a feel for manager Mauricio Pochettino's style of play, although it was not made easy for him, with the former Pirates man busy with him. 

From the minute he entered the field, Barcelona's former captain was hounded by Zimbabwe international Marshall Munetsi, who won 10 duels throughout the course of the match and made 11 recoveries, according to FotMob. 

Munetsi, 25, also thought he stole the show when he scored in the 51st minute of the clash, but his headed goal was ruled out for offside by the video assistant referee. 

Munetsi surely enjoyed taking on Messi as he was pictured most of the time busy trying to get the Argentine off the ball most of the times, creating fouls in the process. 

PSG ende up as the 2-0 winner on the night, a good night for them as they also got to see their new star Lionel Messi on the field for the first time.
