Today he is, unarguably, the greatest football player of all times, and showed that spark right from a very young age. There was a time when Lionel Messi was just another kid playing with other kids in junior-level competitions (I am not sure if it is a club) as in this video. This is one of those rare videos (that explains why the footage is a bit hazy). In case you are unable to make out Leo from among the kids, just keep your eyes on the number 10 jersey or, better still, look for the fastest dribbler who is scoring from left, right and centre.
