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.
|Full name||Lionel Andrés Messi Cuccittini|
|Date of birth||24 June 1987|
|Place of birth||Rosario, Argentina|
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).
