Lionel Messi

For some, Messi is the best player in football history. What is not in doubt is that he regularly performs feats other players cannot do, partly thanks to a lower centre of gravity.

It is true that “La Pulga” (“the Flea”) accumulates records with no less than 125 records broken or tied in 2013 including four Ballon d’Or won in a row (2009, 2010, 2011 and 2012), three European Golden Shoes (2010, 2012 and 2013), number of goals scored in a championship (50 in 2011-12) and sole author of five goals in a game in the Champions League.

It is his vision of the game and his footballing genius which differentiates Messi.

Despite all his achievements, he still lacks a World Cup with Argentina (losing finalist in 2014).
