3: Lionel Messi

Without doubt one of the most talented footballers in history, Lionel Messi's name is already mentioned in the same breath as the likes of Pele and Diego Maradona, and he's only 26. 

There really isn't much the Argentinian magician can't do with a ball as his feet and, given the fact that he's a mere 5ft 7in tall, it's a wonder that he's never bullied on the pitch.

Picked up by Barcelona at a very early age, one could say that the four-time Ballon d'Or winner was destined for glory.
