New, old footage: 8-year-old Leo Messi scoring an unbelievable goal for Central Cordoba (Video)

An amazing video has been uploaded to YouTube this week of Leo Messi when he was just eight years old.

At the time Messi was still in Argentina, playing for Central Cordoba.

The footage, which is over 20 years old, is naturally rather grainy, however it’s clear enough to see how Messi was an incredible talent even as a boy.

In the video, the current FC Barcelona star pulled off a sombrero against an opponent, before he launched a long range lob into the air which soared into the net.

Enjoy the new/old footage of Leo Messi below.
