Lionel Messi is FC Barcelona's Argentinian forward and captain of his motherland's national team, born in 1987. He is by right known as one of the best footballers ever with a unique style and undoubted talent; he is the real alive legend of this kind of sport, who has won numerous highly important awards. He was interested in football since he was a little child and at the age of 19 he became recognized after he scored in FIFA World Cup.

Early Life

As a young boy, Lionel Messi tagged along when his two older brothers played soccer with their friends, unintimidated by the bigger boys. At the age of eight, he was recruited to join the youth system of Newell's Old Boys, a Rosario-based club.

Recognizably smaller than most of the kids in his age group, Messi was eventually diagnosed by doctors as suffering from a hormone deficiency that restricted his growth. Messi's parents, Jorge and Ceclia, decided on a regimen of nightly growth-hormone injections for their son, though it soon proved impossible to pay several hundred dollars per month for the medication. So, at the age of 13, when Messi was offered the chance to train at soccer powerhouse FC Barcelona's youth academy, La Masia, and have his medical bills covered by the team, Messi's family picked up and moved across the Atlantic to make a new home in Spain. Although he was often homesick in his new country, Messi moved quickly through the junior system ranks.
