Lionel Messi & dash; Wiki: age, height and more

Lionel Messi is a talent of the century: in 2012 he was voted "World Player of the Year" for the fourth time in a row.

Lionel Messi's profile begins in 1987 in Rosario (Argentina). At the age of five he became a member of the Grandoli FC football club. At the age of 13, the family emigrated to Barcelona due to the Argentine economic crisis. Better treatment for his stunted growth is another reason for the move. At 13, Messi is barely 1.40 meters tall. Because of his small size, it is difficult for him to find a team.

But FC Barcelona is enthusiastic about his talent. From 2000 he played in the youth team of "Barça" and scored five goals in the first game. Lionel Messi has played for the first team at FC Barcelona since the 2004/2005 season. In September he takes Spanish citizenship and extends his contract. In 2006 Bacelona won the championship with Messi and the Champions League for the first time. The striker is currently considered one of the greatest talents in Argentine football, and is even compared to Diego Maradona. A goal in a cup game in 2007 caused a sensation: Messi sprinted halfway across the field in twelve seconds, outplaying four players and the goalkeeper. The footballer sets numerous records and enjoys "god status".

As part of the U-20 World Cup victory in 2005, the talented footballer scored six goals - he was named the top scorer and best player of the tournament. In August 2005, Lionel Messi made his debut for the Argentine national team. It will be used three times at the 2006 World Cup - Argentina will be eliminated in the quarter-finals. At the Copa America 2007 he only finished second. In 2008, however, the Argentine selection was able to win the gold medal at the Olympic football tournament. At the club level, he already won everything at the age of 25 - but it just doesn't work out with the national team. At the 2014 World Cup in Brazil, the team becomes runner-up. The 2015 season ends in a spectacular way for Messi by winning the triple. "Barça" becomes Spanish champions, cup winners and wins the Champions League final against Juventus Turin in Berlin.

Lionel Messi crowned his personal happiness in June 2017 when he married his long-time girlfriend Antonella, with whom he already had two children. His third son was born in March 2018.
