My favorite football star is Lionel Messi. He is an Argentine professional footballer who plays as a forward and captains both Spanish club Barcelona and the Argentina national team.
Since his debut at the age of 17， Messi has become the world’s best player and won numerous awards， including five Ballon d’Or awards， a record-tying five European Golden Shoes and the inaugural FIFA World Player of the Year award in 2009. He has scored 641 goals in 734 appearances， making him the second-highest goalscorer in La Liga history as well as the all-time top scorer in the UEFA Champions League.
Messi is known for his exceptional ability to dribble， score goals and create chances for his teammates.
