Lionel Messi falls under the great tradition of the players to the surely imposing future, at the sides of Kaká and Cristiano Ronaldo. Its speed, its acceleration but especially its frightening technique did of this left-handed person one of the preferred players of the supporters, making on the ground the happiness of the socios of FC Barcelona and being worth to him the comparison with Maradona.
Measuring 1,69 m and weighing 67 kg, this left-handed person already carries on his back the label of future legend of international football.
Its youth and its health issuesThis young player is originating in Rosario, in the province of Santa Fe (north-eastern of the Argentine). Very young person, it makes wonders ball with the foot among its pars. Thus, to the 5 years age, his/her grandmother takes it along to pass from the tests in the local club, Grandoli, where the pibe plays against some 12 year old kids. Swabbed by its talent, it is found thereafter in the prestigious club of the Newell' S Old Boys. Splashing the matches with its natural talent, the comparisons start. Its impressive services and its demonstrations of jugglings are worth the comparison with the national idol to him Diego Armando Maradona within the public.
At 12 years, it measures only 1,11 meter and medicine is interfered: a doctor detects a hormonal disease at the kid. The professional path of the Leo young person is seen more than ever compromised. This is explained by the fact why the president de Newell' S refuses to pay the treatment which would make it possible Messi to make up for its lost time of growth (Argentina then passed through the worst economic crisis of its history) and his/her parents do not have either the means of such a medicine.
After a conclusive test, Masia, the training center of FC Barcelona, deals with the medical care of Argentinian which settles in Catalogne in 2000 with its family. But Lionel Messi is not at the end of its sorrows. At the time of its second match with Infantil B (the team of young people of Barça), it fractures the Péroné and becomes inalienable for three months. In 2001, it is a litigation with its old club which moves away it from the grounds from February at June.
The adventure with the FC BarcelonaAt 16 years, with an acceptable size from now on, he is convened for the first time vis-a-vis the Espanyol Barcelona. We are then the October 16th 2004. This young player will not wait a long time to fill with wonder the supporters. Indeed, against the Albacete, Lionel Messi returns in the history of the club thanks to its first goal of a clever pricked ball. At 17 years 10 months and 7 days, he becomes quite simply the youngest player to be marked for Barça during a match of Liga. This record fell on October 20th, 2007 when the young person Bojan Krkic, ènième talent formed in Barça, registered against Villareal CF its first goal with old 17 years 1 month and 22 days, following a splendid master key of… Leo Messi, which enabled him to beat its own record.
The March 10th 2007, for the énième time it splashes the match with its talent and fills with wonder the amateurs at the round ball. Indeed, at the time of the Clásico opposing Barça to the Real Madrid, it saves its club with a hat-trick which allows Barça, to 10 against 11, to tear off tie 3-3 vis-a-vis its rival.
The April 18th 2007, at the time of the semi-final outward journey of the Cut of Spain vis-a-vis Getafe CF, it marks a goal of extraterrestrial: on the basis of its own camp it dribble 6 unfavourable players (including the guard) before slipping the ball at the bottom of the nets. A goal worthy of that marked by Diego Maradona with the World of 1986 against the Team of England.
He reiterated an exploit Maradonesque the June 9th 2007 at the time of the Catalan derby vis-a-vis Espanyol Barcelona (2-2), by marking hand at the time of the penultimate day of the championship. After " the Hand of God " , this gesture was named " the Hand of Messi". This goal points out well to us the marked goal of the hand by Diego Maradona with World of 1986 against England.
Messi thus reproduced with identical the two incredible goals of Diego Maradona to the match opposing Argentina and England out of World cup 1986. One vis-a-vis Getafe, the other vis-a-vis Espanyol.
Since the beginning of the season 2007-2008, it is one of the principal agents of the play of the Catalans and is announced by goals as splendid as in doing of him one of the potential candidates to the gold balloon.
Characteristics of the playerLocated most of the time on the right-sided of the attack, it benefits from its incredible promptness of feet and legs to come to return in the axis and to conclude the actions by means of a goal or of a master key décisive.
Able to carry out exploits on a lawn, it quickly stopped the school to be devoted to its passion. This player with the immense talent is equipped with a vision of the extraordinary play, an incredible speed and exemplary technical aptitudes. Messi feels at his place on the ground, always finding openings where those seem impossible. Thanks to its bursts of speed, its unbalancing and imperceptible dribbles and its capacity to cut through a path even through the most hermetic rear-guards, it represents a constant threat for unfavourable defenses, which are unable to stop it.
Of a calm temperament, it also impresses by its changes of rates/rhythms, its address on the remote shootings and its capacity to mark goals.
In national teamSome delegated of the royal Fédération of Spain of football did not wait a long time before carrying out the immense talent of Messi, making it possible to him to represent its country of adoption in the junior category. But the Argentinas origins are deeply anchored in him and he refuses this proposal politely, in the hope which one day he will belong to the Albicelestes .
This dream becomes reality when it is selected in the Argentinian team of less than 20 years to dispute the eliminatory matches in Colombia, for a qualification for Netherlands 2005. And already with the shirt of its national selection, Lionel Messi knew enormous emotions. Crowned better player of the Championships of the World Junior of the FIFA in 2005, Argentinian number 18 proved that it had the potential of largest. Époustouflant ball with the foot, it is especially at that time that it appeared.
Popular passion, in Argentinian, around this " player of poche" (because of its size) with the imperceptible dribbles calls with superlatives. One regularly compares it with the national idol and planetary legend, Maradona.
