The Messi thread.

Post by Bel on Mon May 19, 2008 6:57 am



Full Name: Lionel Andrés Messi
Date of Birth: June 24, 1987 (20)
Place of Birth: Rosario, Argentina
Position: Right Winger, Forward
Height: 5'7" (1.69 M)


The Argentinian player has been praised from the moment he has stepped out on the scene. This generation's best dribbler, the left-footed right winger has made a name for himself, and at the young age of 20, this immensely talented player will set out to prove himself and overcome his injuries more and more. Maradona 2.0?

Don't get me wrong, I definitely think that. Laughing

But this kid is truly unreal. His dribbling is superb, and it's hard to mark him. He's got the best dribbling ability imo, but is not the most complete of the players of this generation.

Would like to see him conquer his injury problems.
