Honestly, This is by far the best video on Messi I've seen and kudos to whoever compiled/made it.Also "reminds" me just how great Lio is (hey, Jesus himself had his moments of doubt so I'm allowed a few). Truly, I have never seen a player who is so aware of every blade of grass on the pitch like Messi, every player around him and what their next move will be. All in a matter of seconds, he sees what we couldn't even dream of (trust me, I have tried and I'm sure some of you have as well) and somehow calculates what specific action is required ....Pele who?Maradona? Meh....When Messi is at this level (make no mistake ladies and gentlemen, he is at his best more consistently than any other to have played the beautiful game) then I have to ask myself "how do any of us dare to compare Ronaldo to Messi?" ....I hope you guys enjoy this as much as I did
