Lionel Messi, Argentina prepare for FIFA World Cup 2018 glory

Lionel Messi’s list of career accomplishments is enviable to say the least.

Apart from winning numerous honours with Barcelona, he is a record five-time Ballon d’Or winner. His natural talent and penchant for goals have seen many of the current generation of promising footballers cite him as an influence and led to many calling him the best player of all time.

However, it’s an assessment the man himself doesn’t agree with. Amazingly, he sees himself as “just another player” for the Argentina national football team and Barcelona.
