Lionel Messi is a world renowned player famous for his slick skills, fast pace and cunning agility. He plays a big part in the Barcelona side making marauding runs throughout the pitch and smashing through opposing defences like an argentine bull dozer.

Lionel Messi has made a mark on history and his ability will live on as the fast dribbling, defence breaking, jaw dropping player he is. If there was to be a man of this time to ever be considered as the best of all time Lionel Messi would be a very strong contender.
