Soccer superstar Lionel Messi is arguably one of the greatest players to step foot on the pitch, winning a record six Ballon d'Or Awards, four of which he won in consecutive order, and a record six European Golden Shoes. The top Argentinian goal scorer of all-time, Messi is a creative playmaker and a prolific goal scorer whose 474 goals are a La Liga record. Messi has become a legend, but all legends must have a beginning, and for Messi, that beginning came on November 16th, 2003. The then 16-year-old Messi made his debut for FC Barcelona during a friendly against Porto to inaugurate Porto's new stadium, the Estadio do Dragao. Messi created two chances and recorded one shot on goal during Porto's 2-0 victory over Barcelona that impressed the staff at Barcelona. Messi would begin training with the club's reserve side, Barcelona B, and weekly with the first team shortly after.
