Lionel Messi: 10 times he shocked the world thread has gone viral

Lionel Messi is probably the greatest player to have ever played the game.

The Argentine superstar has won seven Ballons d’Or and has wowed football fans with his genius for more than a decade now.

Messi is so good that we can often overlook some of the incredible things he achieves in his career because we’re simply numb to his brilliance.

At Barcelona, he scored 672 goals in 778 appearances in all competitions and produced some quite amazing moments, breaking some insane records in the meantime.

It’s a nigh-on impossible task to name the greatest moment of Messi’s career so far.

But one Twitter account has attempted to name 10 of Messi’s greatest moments in a viral thread called: ’10 Times Leo Messi shocked the World’.

The thread takes us through 10 of the best Messi moments – and it really does show just many incredible things he’s done in football.

The fact that so many unbelievable moments have been missed out also highlights his outrageous talent.

Let’s take you through them one by one.
