Argentine model, actress and radio producer Fiorella Castillo has said that she could beat superstar Lionel Messi while playing in her heels.

Apart from her enticing looks, Castillo gained reputation with her luminous skill with a football. While Messi and company were the losing finalists at this summer's FIFA World Cup, the model actress was demonstrating her football skills of the freestyle variety on Brazilian beaches during the tournament.

Castillo boasted that, despite her towering footwear she had beaten more than 800 men who had challenged her to a game of freestyle on Ipanema Beach in Rio de Janeiro. She said that her heels are between 10 and 15 centimetres high, Gulf News reported.

Castillo feels so comfortable juggling the ball in heels, that she is confident she could outperform her illustrious compatriot, Messi, in the art of freestyle. She said that if she was playing with Messi and was in her heels, for sure she would defeat the star footballer.

Castillo added with a chuckle that if both she and Messi were wearing heels, she would definitely win, although she said that she is not sure he'd want to wear heels.

The Argentine model said that she had said during the World Cup that she would challenge Messi to a game, but it was more of a joke, although some newspapers in Argentina took it seriously.

Castillo continued that she feels very confident that she could beat Messi at freestyle because although he might be the best footballer in the world, it doesn't mean he could do the same things as she can with the ball in a freestyle sense.

She said that she would still love to challenge Messi, but would not dare to do so as he's the best player in the world.
