Few can argue that Lionel Messi has made an outstanding impact for Barcelona these past 10 years. His mesmerising runs with the ball glued to his feet have carved open some of the worlds best defences and left some heavyweight defenders and goalkeepers floored by his mind boggling genius that some of us can only dream of doing ourselves .
He has racked up 388 appearances and 324 goals for Barcelona, he is also a four times world player of the year, A 3 times winner of the champions league and has scored a breathtaking 73 goals in all competitions in the 2011-2012 season.
Few can argue that he has earned his place among the all time greats of world football. But to be called the greatest of all time Lionel Messi needs to weave his magic on the one place he has not done it yet. On the biggest stage of them all the World Cup.
