Although Leo Messi is one of the best soccer players in the world, his influence expands well beyond the world of sports.
Lionel Messi is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward and captains both Spanish club Barcelona and the Argentina national team. Many consider him the best player in the world and some regard him as the greatest player of all time.
He has spent his entire professional career with Barcelona, where he has won a club-record 32 trophies. Messi holds the records for most goals in La Liga and in Europe's top five leagues, as well as many other goal-scoring records. He has scored over 680 senior career goals for club and country.
He announced his international retirement in 2016 but reversed his decision and led his country to qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup. In that tournament, he became the third Argentine after Diego Maradona and Gabriel Batistuta to score in three different World Cups.
