Barcelona: Video of '20 Lionel Messi dribbles that shocked the world'

Lionel Messi: The greatest dribbler of all time!

Lionel Messi is a footballer of many, many talents.

The Argentine is one of the greatest goal scorers of all time and can also lay claim to being one of the finest playmakers to have ever played the game.

But perhaps his finest asset is his outrageous dribbling ability. Messi isn't one for producing outlandish flicks, tricks and skills, but he regularly beats opposing defenders with effortless ease.

The ball often looks glued to his feet and his array of feints and dummies have left many a player in a crumpled heap down the years.

It really is a glorious sight to behold and if you fancy watching close to 10 minutes of Messi 'shocking the world' with his dribbling ability, we've got the video just for you.

YouTube user 'Messi TheBoss' has uploaded some fantastic footage of some of the great man's finest dribbles.

It's absolutely ridiculous that all these clips belong to one man, but this is possibly the greatest player ever we are talking about.

What. A. Video!

You have to feel sorry for poor ol' Levante and Atletico, who were both the victims of Messi's dribbling brilliance three times.

There is not a single player on the planet that would be able to perform the same dribbles as Messi provided throughout the video.

Neymar, Eden Hazard and Kylian Mbappe are perhaps the only players who could get close to the Barcelona man's brilliance, but even players of their stature would struggle.

Messi really is one of a kind and his dribbling ability is unmatched. What a player!
