Lionel Messi scores 4 in fundraiser

CHICAGO -- Lionel Messi gave fans a show with four goals to lead his all-star team to a 9-6 victory in Saturday night's Messi & Friends vs. the Rest of the World soccer exhibition.

Messi played into the 69th minute and left the game to a mixture of cheers and boos from the 25,000 fans at Soldier Field.

The game was the only U.S. appearance in a series of fundraisers for Messi-affiliated charities.

Originally a four-game series, two games were played in South America, but Wednesday's contest in Los Angeles was canceled after Messi declined to play in a dispute with promoters.

The game was to feature up to 35 international stars, but attracted half that. Nine former Northwestern University players helped filled out the rosters.

Former Wildcats forward Matt Eliason had the game's most dramatic goal, scoring on a bicycle kick in the 20th minute.
