#10. Lionel Messi
This really came to us as a shocker as well when we started compiling the list but the truth is that the Barcelona star’s diminutive presence shouldn’t fool anyone. The Argentine striker is arguably the best player in the game today and relies a lot on his amazing control and superhuman speed to get the job done. However, Messi has an extremely powerful pair of legs on him which is why he is so explosive in the first few yards of a run. No wonder it is so hard to move him off the ball.
