Born Lius Lionel Andres Messi in the great football country, Argentina..a player with a class i must say..I am not so crazy about football like some of my friends who argue like a million dollar has been stolen..but this young brilliant soccer star has been consistent and has never stopped being merciless on the field of play, either at the club level or the national team.

Messi has been compared to compatriot Diego Maradona, due to their similar playing style and stature which gives him a lower centre of gravity than most players, allowing him to be more agile and change direction more quickly, helping him to evade tackles...

Lionel Messi has been named as the Fifa Ballon D’Or Player of the year for the fourth time in a row…making him the first player in the history of football to win the prestigious award four times.
He received the award tonight in Zurich, Switzerland beating Cristiano Ronaldo and Barcelona team mate, Andres Iniesta to the award.
Messi: 41.6%
Ronaldo: 23.7%
Iniesta: 10.9%

In January 2013, Messi appeared in a short advert for Japanese face wash Scalp-D. The advert showed the Argentine speaking a few Japanese words and this proves that he has a great career ahead of him..i feel this is just the beginning for him.
