Barcelona play a match against blind team

In a change from their normal routine, and in partnership with Unicef, a handful of Barcelona players took part in a short match against the Spanish blind football team.

Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, Sergi Roberto and Ivan Rakitic, tried their luck but were shown that the ear plays as important a role as the eye during these type of games.

A bell is used inside the ball with players blindfolded, and the challenge is to follow the progress of the ball by hearing alone.

Messi was still able to score a penalty despite the handicap.
