    Pure joy watching this. The great feeling of simple football from kid to man to kid. Thank Pies and Matt.

    He’s no Bebe.

    Incredible. He was, without a shadow of a doubt, better than I am now when he was about 8.

  4. PC10DaTruth says:

    Awesome video. But anyone notice that the videos when he was around 8, the kids on the other team where just studs up challenging all the time? lol

  5. AJ says:

    Porcelain sandwich – I was thinking very much the same. I love how even at 8 it’s clearly Messi, he’s one of those footballers with a totally unique way of moving with the ball.

    Anyone know what the music is?

  6. Cristiano says:

    Still ugly.

  7. plops says:

    I hope he ate that orange after bruising it like that.

  8. marl0we says:

    Yes but does he track back?

  9. Very Cool says:

    Must admit I never really been a fan – simple jealousy… but wow, this video is amazing – changed my point of view in 8 bloody minutes… WHAT A CHAMP – the kid always deserved it, and you can see he put(s) his and soul into the game. Magic.
