Fans on Twitter went crazy as Lionel Messi treated them to a brilliant display.

"8th Ballon d'Or loading, World Cup is the goal" - Lionel Messi fans lose their mind on Twitter as PSG superstar puts in stunning cameo performance for Argentina against Jamaica

Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) forward Lionel Messi put on a show for Argentina after coming off the bench, much to the happiness and amazement of his fans.

Messi started La Albiceleste's friendly encounter against Jamaica on Tuesday (September 27) as a substitute. His team didn't seem to suffer much in his absence and led 1-0 thanks to Manchester City forward Julian Alvarez's 13th-minute strike.

The seven-time Ballon d'Or winner eventually joined proceedings in the 56th minute, replacing Lautaro Martinez, who had assisted Alvarez's goal.

Lionel Messi seemed to be in the mood right from the off and put in a magical display. He first scored from the edge of the box in the 86th minute to effectively seal Argentina's 35th consecutive win across competitions.

The PSG forward then cleverly placed a free-kick under the wall and into the bottom corner three minutes later to make it 3-0.

His performance expectedly brought him praise from all corners as his fans went berserk on Twitter. One of them tweeted:

"Lionel Messi['s] Argentina is the best. 35 games and still counting. World cup is the Goal. 8th Ballon d'or loading 🔥#Messi𓃵"
