I watched Lionel Messi in a stadium first time in 2005 in Netherlands. He was cruising with Argentina U20 National Team. Turkey was waiting to play against Spain and Argentina beat Colombia 2-0. Messi was amazing that day. I knew that he was exceptional that time but the margin between him and other players were not that big.
In Super Cup i watched him once again and i was really surprised. He is still skinny and small however his talents and capacity almost tripled in four years. I have known that he improved drastically but seeing this improvement with my own eyes was special. He was the only one worth watching during the final and he deserved a big applause in the end.
