Lionel Messi made a 'playing' comeback for Barcelona in a bounce game yesterday - and didn't disappoint. Fresh from his full recovery from a hamstring injury, Messi hit a hat-trick in the intra-club friendly - which finished 4-4.

Making it all the more special was the performance was in front of a full house at the 13,200-seater Miniestadi, after Barca held an opening training session to celebrate the squad's return from their winter recess.
