Barcelona's Lionel Messi scored two late goals as his team eventually wore down the resistance of fellow Spaniards Real Madrid in their Champions League semi-final first leg last night.

Messi was the difference between the two sides in a bad-tempered match which saw Real's Pepe red-carded for a high tackle, and coach Jose Mourinho banished to the stands for verbal abuse of the fourth official.

The real drama came, however, when I discovered that Lionel Messi is an anagram of Lone Missile, which is odd, don't you think? Especially when you bear in mind that HE IS a lone missile in respect of Barca's attack.

I couldn't believe it when the final letter fell into place, and this latest find is one to rival the strange anagram of Britney Spears (Presbyterians) and even betters the classic old Lembit Opik anagram (Kip O'Timble).

Only last week, I discovered that Avram Grant is an anagram of Mr A Vagrant, but as I can't keep this anagram bullshit up forever, I thought I'd end on a high note, and Messi is a special kind of player.

Once again readers, from the Bernabéu, it finished Real Madrid 0 Lone Missile 2

* By the way, on a topical Royal Wedding note, Real Madrid is an anagram of Lad Married.

The story above is a satire or parody. It is entirely fictitious.
