Lineker feels it is something the Welsh ace must eradicate from his game.
"... thatâ€™s something he probably needs to look at. Messi doesnâ€™t ever dive which is another amazing attribute to him. You know, there are one or two incidents where heâ€™s clearly thrown himself to the ground and then people look for it.
"There are other occasions where heâ€™s been slightly unfortunate where heâ€™s been blatantly fouled and gone to ground, as you would because I mean he does move so quickly and to be honest every time I shot I nearly, I fell over, my balance was fairly hopeless, but not diving, so, if I were him now Iâ€™d try and eradicate that from my game. He just doesnâ€™t need it.â€ť
