Barcelona and Argentina forward Lionel Messi went on a Japanese television game show and shot on an inflatable goalkeeper.

For the show, the 28-year-old was challenged to score three times on penalties, while the inflatable doll blocked the way. Naturally, the star netted each of his three attempts with ease, wowing the live studio audience in the process.

Messi’s goals were particularly impressive given the doll’s massive size.

Messi has scored 35 goals in 41 appearances this season.
