Lionel Andrés Messi was born on 24 June 1987 in Rosario.
At 16 years, four months, and 23 days old, Messi made his first team debut when he came on in the 75th minute during a friendly against José Mourinho’s Porto on 16 November 2003.
His performance, creating two chances and a shot on goal, impressed the technical staff, and he subsequently began training daily with the club’s reserve side, Barcelona B, as well as weekly with the first team.
After his first training session with the senior squad, Barça’s new star player, Ronaldinho, told his teammates that he believed the 16-year-old would become an even better player than himself.
Ronaldinho soon befriended Messi, whom he called “little brother”, which greatly eased his transition into the first team.
To gain further match experience, Messi joined Barcelona C in addition to the Juveniles A,playing his first game for the third team on 29 November. He helped save them from the relegation zone of the Tercera División.
He scored five goals in ten games, including a hat-trick in eight minutes during a Copa del Rey match.
