Striker: Lionel Messi

Football News

So, who is the greatest footballer of all time? Is it Pele, Maradona, or could it be Lionel Messi?

The Argentinian is already a Barcelona legend at the tender age of 26 as a result of his other-worldly performances over the past decade.

Messi has scored a remarkable 339 goals in 408 appearances for the Catalan giants since making his debut in 2004.

Born with the most incredible natural ability, Messi is a footballing freak, who will beat any defender in world football in a one-on-one situation.

Can he cement his legacy as the greatest ever by winning the World Cup in Brazil this summer?
