How is this done? Messi's motions seem so effortless...he barely had a "wind up" if that makes sense? Its this more of a scoop than a chip?

the ball was already bouncing so all it took was a little kick at it from the bottom to get it over.

Messi does that when the ball isn't bouncing, too. for example the pass he had to Sergio Aguero against Korea. I think it pops up like that because he snaps his ankle a little.

I first tried to imagine how he does it, and I couldn't find an explanation. But then I realized he did with his strong foot, and then I imagined me doing it with my right foot, and then I could see me doing it.

He hits it really in the lower part of the ball, with lots of controlled - strength, the ball being in movement helped it elevate, and he used the side of his bigtoe, and the side of his instep. Hard to explain really, but its doable with repetition and practice.

Yeah, I agree. He really accelerated through the ball to give it that high of loft. The ball started to slow its roll so he was running up into the ball's path, which did make it a little easier. If he was going full speed with the ball, ball height like that would have been reallllllly tough.
