Lionel Messi Reviewed
This kid is only 20 years old and a talent described abroad as good as Diego Maradona (his idol). He made a goal recently just like the one Diego did in the World Cup 86' against England and no, I am not talking the one with the "hand of God" lol but the other one where he (alone) defeats several English players from half field and makes a fantastic goal that is now considered, the best goal in the history of football.
Well, Messi did a very similar goal but what was the difference? Well, it was not a World Cup neither he was playing against England, nevertheless this boy has an amazing future. I hope he keeps himself as humble as he seems to be. Health issues and all, the story of this kid is kind of miraculous.

The World Player of the Year is what we call Class on the Grass. He has perfect poise and character on and off the ball, a killer finish and he seems like a sound geezer.

Comments: Give Messi a chance! He is the most talented player on the Argentine side. Remember too he does not have the same players to assist him like he does in Europe too. Messi will bring it on in the next match just wait and see. Go Messi!
JB, how much you know about football? :sneaky: Since when a player is considered great if it makes goals? Diego Maradona was the best player in the history of football and he was not, I repeat NOT a striker or one to make goals. Yet, he was the MASTERMIND behind the goals in the form of passes, etc. Messi is very similar in that aspect. From ALL the games Argentina played so far, if you have observed, the mastermind of it all was Lionel Messi.
