A few individuals could argue the fact that Lionel Messi is one of the best player in football history (possibly the best ever), judging by his stats.

The Argentine still remains the only player in history to win an incredible six FIFA Ballons d'Or awards. He still remains the only player to score 91 goals in a calendar year. But what makes Messi so special is not just his scary goal records, it's his ability to get past his opponents effortlessly. No surprises, that's an act he mastered since he was a boy.

Lionel Messi developed a passion for the game at an early age and spent his childhood playing football with his brothers. At the age of five, Messi started playing for the Grandoli, a local club coached by his father. By the time he turned eight, he was playing for Newell’s Old Boys. The group was immensely talented, which is visible from the fact that they lost just a single match in the next four years.

But this young lad is no respecter of talents, as a rare video of the no.10 as a little boy shows him doing the things he's well known for.
