Video: Fulham and Sunderland target keeps Messi quiet

Venezuelan international who could be on the way to the Premier League shows how to defend against Barcelona's finest in a World Cup qualifier.

Tomas Rincon has been linked with both Fulham and Sunderland this week in regards to a January move from German side Hamburg, so we thought we'd show the fans what they could be seeing at some point this season.

Rincon was part of the Venezuela side that picked up a 1-0 win over Argentina in the qualifiers for the 2014 World Cup back in October 2011 and was handed the task of marking Lionel Messi

And as you can see from the video below, he did a fantastic job...

Fulham and Sunderland fans, is he the kind of player you need at the club? Let us know what you think.
