VIDEO: 10 Years Ago Today Lionel Messi Scored His Very First Goal For Barcelona

Lionel Messi has scored 368 goals in his Barcelona career, along the way picking up three FIFA Ballon d’Ors, six La Liga titles and three Champions Leagues.

Not bad going for a player who in British football, would probably have been pushed out of the game for not being big enough.

10 years ago today the Argentinian magician scored his first ever goal for the Catalonian club, a strike which undoubtedly set him on his way to superstardom.

A minute after coming on from the bench, the unknown 17-year-old exchanged a mout-watering one-two with arguably the greatest player on the planet at the time, Ronaldinho.

The former Brazil international delivers an wonderful chipped pass to Messi who then has the presence of mind to lob Albacete Balompie goalkeeper Raul Valbuena:

Messi currently trails Real Madrid star Cristiano Ronaldo in the race for the coveted Pichichi Award, the prize given to the top goal scorer in La Liga.
