Lionel Messi is and always will be my favorite soccer player. Just like the team he plays for, he is a thrill to watch whenever he steps foot on the field. The way he moves the ball, shoots, passes, everything, he makes soccer look so simple. He's so quick and makes the smartest decisions faster than any other soccer player, for that, he has received 5 FIFA Ballon d'Ors. During games he will make players think he's going one way and then change it up at the last second. Even when players guess the right way that he's dribbling, he'll change it at the most unpredictable time. He's my inspiration for soccer and I love watching him play.
