The girl that Messi hit with the ball: "Now I like him even less"

"I've never liked Messi, now I like him even less", confessed Raquel, the girl who went viral online when Messi hit her with a ball at El Madrigal.

Raquel went viral online when a video of her fainting after she was hit by a wayward Leo Messi strike was uploaded onto social media. Interviewed on Spanish radio about the incident, she showed her true colours, confessing: "I'm a Real Madrid fan, I didn't like before, now I like him even less".

Raquel was hit by the Argentine's off-target shot in the first half of the match against Villareal, leaving her dazed and on the verge of fainting.
