Lionel Messi

DOMINATED AT 5-YEARS-OLD

... Insane Video

7/9/2014 4:01 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF



Before he led Argentina to the World Cup final ... Lionel Messi was destroying athletes in his own country since he was 5-years-old ... and there's video to prove it. 

Check out this clip of Messi carvin up at least 6 opponents back in 1993 ... when he was just a little guy (well, littler than he is now at least). 

Fun Fact -- even back then, Messi was rockin' #10 ... must be his lucky number. 

We'll see if Messi and company can do the same to Germany when they face off in the championship on Sunday.

Messi is awesome, no doubt about it. But the one leading the team today without being the captain was Javier Mascherano . Kudos also to there goalkeeper Romero without him who nows what would have happened

"Must of been lucky number" -- c'mon TMZ Sports, everyone who even follows the sport a bit know #10 is designated for the captain/best player/striker in a team.

yeah..it's true! today Mascherano and Romero saved the match. Messi didnt play well cause today an argentinian reporter and friend died in San Pablo in a terrible car accident (produced by brasilian thiefs that were running from cops). This reporter known as Jorge Luis "topo" Lopez was very close to Messi and his family, so this tragedy hit hard on Lio. He is still the best soccer player in the world, and there will be no other like him.
