Lionel Messi vs robot goalkeeper

This might be the only way for managers to stop Lionel Messi in his tracks – by signing a Japanese goalkeeping robot. Messi has been branded a killing machine. His exploits have left managers in La Liga and throughout Europe tearing their hair out as just how to halt the Argentine striker. RoboKeeper was, not surprisingly, given life by the Germans.

It uses a pair of cameras to track the ball, and reacts faster than any human could. Leave it to the Japanese, then, to test RoboKeeper against the best, Barcelona striker Lionel Messi.
