His ball skills are second to none, his runs from midfield are usually lethal and he is almost impossible to tackle when he gets his head down. His balance when running at speed is incredible.
Too often he searches for a way to finish moves by himself without looking for team-mates in a better position to shoot at goal.
Winning the 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012 World Player of the Year awards.
He was unable to perform to his best in the 2006 World Cup in Germany, where Argentina were eliminated in the quarter-finals.
A stylish runner with the ball, quick, incisive, balanced.
His debut with the national team (against Hungary) was a disaster: 47 seconds after his entered in second falf he was sent off.
