Messi has won the most Ballon D’OR ever, six Ballon D’or to his name and is also the first player to do so. On January 2013 he set a record for a fourth straight Ballon d’or . This is so unreal! He also holds the record for most European Golden Shoe awards(6) and won the 2014 World Cup Golden Ball award. He is Argentina’s top goalscorer with 70 goals.
