Lionel Andrés "Leo" Messi was born on the 24th of June 1987 is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward for Spanish club
FC Barcelona and captains the Argentina national team. Often considered the best player in the world and rated by many in the sport as the greatest of all time, Messi is the only football player in history to win five FIFA Ballons d'Or, four of which he won consecutively and was the first player to win three European Golden Shoes.With Barcelona he has won eight La
Liga titles and four UEFA Champions League titles, as well as six Supercopa de España titles, four Copas del Rey, three UEFA Super Cups
and three FIFA ClubWorld Cups. Both a prolific goalscorer and a creative playmaker, Messi holds the records for most goals scored in La Liga, a La Liga season (50), a football season (73) and a calendar year (91), as well as the most goals in the Supercopa de España (12) and most goals in El
Clásico (21) and also those for most assists made in La Liga and the Copa América. He has scored over 500 senior career goals for club and country, making him the 10th most prolific goal scorer of all time.
Born and raised in central Argentina, Messi was diagnosed with a growth hormone deficiency as a child. At age 13, he relocated to Spain to join
Barcelona, who agreed to pay for his medical treatment. After a fast progression through Barcelona's youth academy, Messi made his
competitive debut aged 17 in October 2004. Despite being injury-prone during his early career, he established himself as an integral player for the club within the next three years, finishing 2007 as a finalist for both the
Ballon d'Or and FIFA World Player of the Year award, a feat he repeated the following year. His first uninterrupted campaign came in the 2008–09
season, during which he helped Barcelona achieve the first treble in Spanish football. At 22 years old, Messi won the Ballon d'Or and FIFA
World Player of the Year award by record voting margins.
Three successful seasons followed, with Messi winning three consecutive
FIFA Ballons d'Or, including an unprecedented fourth. His personal best campaign to date was the 2011–12 season, in which he set the La Liga
and European records for most goals scored in a single season, while establishing himself as Barcelona's all-time top scorer in official
competitions in March 2012. He again struggled with injury during the following two seasons, twice finishing second for the Ballon d'Or behind
Cristiano Ronaldo, his perceived career rival. Messi regained his best form during the 2014–15 campaign, breaking the all-time goalscoring records in both La Liga and the Champions League in November 2014 and led Barcelona to a historic second treble.
An Argentine international, Messi is his country's all-time leading goal
scorer, with 57 international goals. At youth level, he won the 2005 FIFA World Youth Championship, finishing the tournament with both the Golden Ball and Golden Shoe, and an Olympic gold medal at the 2008 Summer Olympics. His style of play as a diminutive, left-footed dribbler
drew comparisons with compatriot Diego Maradona, who declared the teenager his successor. After making his senior debut in August 2005,
Messi became the youngest Argentine to play and score in a FIFA World Cup during the 2006 edition and reached the final of the 2007 Copa America, where he was named young player of the tournament. As the squad's captain from August 2011, he led Argentina to three consecutive
finals: the 2014 World Cup, for which he won the Golden Ball, the 2015 and the 2016 Copas America.
