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.
