Lionel Messi



Leo was born in Rosario, Argentina. He celebrated his 24th birthday on the 24th of June 2011.


Messi was born in 1987. Here are some of the things that made the news that year: 1) The National Lottery is launched in Ireland. 2) Johnny Logan wins the Eurovision Song Contest with 'Hold me Now'. 3) Stephen Roche wins the Tour de France. 4) Meath defeat Cork in the All-Ireland football final by 1-12 to 0-9 5) Soccer: Ireland qualify for their first ever major tournament, Euro '88, when Scotland pull off a shock and beat Bulgaria 1-0 in Sofia.  


So how much did Barcelona pay for this world-class player? Absolutely nothing. Barcelona spotted Messi when he was playing  at Newells Old Boys in Rosario, from 1995-2000 – and he had joined his home town club when he was eight years old. Barcelona’s world-wide scouting system spotted him in 2000, and signed him when he was 12 years old, and brought him to Barcelona in Spain.


Messi has won two Champions Leagues with Barcelona in 2009 and 2011.
