Prolly the first time I saw Messi play and thought "cor, that kid could be good".
I think Messi probably deserved that for what came later in the game
I think he should get the hair back, he looks like an extra off Shameless, it's a good look!
Yep, first time of seeing him for me aswell. I heard alot about him, the hype around him was huge so I was expecting alot. He wasn't great that game (7 years later and he's still trying to score against Chelsea, afterall!), but yeah, he's more than lived up to the high expectations.
