Argentina and Barcelona talisman, Lionel Messi is widely considered as the greatest player in the history of the sport, with the striker creating/breaking numerous records during his career including winning a record six Ballon d'Or awards.

The 33-year-old is known for his exploits on the pitch and the Barcelona fans know his worth as back in 2019 they voted his goal against Getafe in 2007 as the greatest goal scored by a player in the history of the club.

His goal against Getafe came in the semi-final of the Spanish Cup, when he was just 19-years-old, as he dribbled past the whole Getafe side and slotted the ball in the back of the net. The move started when Xavi passed to Messi on the right, around the halfway line, covering 60 metres and only touching the ball 13 times, Messi proceeded to cut inside Alexis and then straightened back up onto goal past Belenguer.

Messi continues to grab eyeballs on a regular basis and continues to be prolific in front of goal as seen by the 31 goals he has scored in just 40 appearances in all competitions so far this season and he recently led the Catalan giants to the Copa del Rey title.
