For his country, he captained them to the Copa America tournament, where he has scored the most goals and gave the most assists (Top Goalscorer and Top Assister). This gave him the honorary award of Copa America Player of the Tournament(POTT). Lionel Messi is unarguably the best footballer in history.
In second place was, Robert Lewandowski (Bayern Munich, Poland) and the second-runner up was Jorginho Frello (Chelsea, Italy).
