Argentina’s Star Power – Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi

Lionel Messi plays for the Argentina national team, as well as FC Barcelona, and is a professional Argentine soccer player. He is widely agreed to be one of the best players of his generation, and has won FIFA World Player of the Year four times consecutively, which is a record. Ronaldo said about Messi, in 2011, that Messi is currently the best out there. The first competitive club to show interest in Messi was River Plate, but because he was diagnosed with a hormone deficiency disease, and they refused to pay for the treatment, that never worked out. Barcelona took him on, and today he is considered one of their greatest talents. He also scored four hat-tricks in the Champions League competition, which is a record. He is currently playing in Group F of FIFA World Cup 2014.
