Barcelona star Lionel Messi made his much awaited return to the starting XI of Barcelona on Tuesday night as his side thrashed Roma 6-1 in the UEFA Champions League.
The Argentine, who captained Barca with Andres Iniesta not playing, scored twice, had another goal disallowed and set up a goal for Gerard Pique.
Messi was excited playing football again after an injury setback.
"It felt good to play the 90 minutes," he told UEFA.com
"Little by little, I am feeling better. I am happy with the result and to have played 90 minutes. We are happy with how things are going but there is still a long way to go.
"We will try to keep our level up. I am really happy for all the praise I get, but I just want to keep helping the team and hopefully we can reach our objectives at the end of the season."
Barcelona are back in action at home to Real Sociedad in La Liga on Saturday.
