Football News

Lionel Messi is widely recognised as the world's best player and one of the greatest footballers in the history of the game.

The Barcelona star boasts a remarkable scoring record of 318 goals in 383 matches since turning professional at the Camp Nou in 2004 - while his unique talent and hunger to win has led to many individual accolades, including four Ballon d'Or awards in consecutive seasons between 2009 and 2012.

At 26, Messi has achieved everything in the club game, and will have the chance to cement his status as the best player of all time by leading Argentina to World Cup glory in Brazil next summer.

Millions of people watch his best goals and skills on a monthly basis on YouTube - but one of his many admirers has gone one step further by creating a flip-book of some of his best moments for both Barcelona and Argentina.

Fittingly, the flip-book ends by showing drawings of arguably his greatest goal: the stunning solo effort against Getafe from a Copa del Rey tie in 2007.
