CHICAGO -- Lionel Messi gave fans a show with four goals to lead his all-star team to a 9-6 victory in Saturday night's Messi & Friends vs. the Rest of the World soccer exhibition.
Messi played into the 69th minute and left the game to a mixture of cheers and boos from the 25,000 fans at Soldier Field.
The game was the only U.S. appearance in a series of fundraisers for Messi-affiliated charities.
