Oh, we hope this video of Lionel Messi as a young'n is real. The Big Lead points out a couple things that support this clip as being the real deal, such as "some of the video is dated 1993/1994 which would put Messi in the 6-7 range" and "he is wearing a uniform that looks a lot like Newell’s Old Boys, the club he joined in 1995." In addition, the kid in these highlights is dominating the competition, which is something very Messi-like, if you ask us.
