Lionel Messi: A timeline of his landmark goals

The beginning: A 17-year-old Messi is mobbed by his Barcelona teammates after he scored his first ever goal for the club in a league match against Albacete, at the Camp Nou, in 2005. A brilliant chip pass from Ronaldinho, Messi's mentor, was responsible for this historic moment. How poetic. Photo: Getty Images
Back to home base, Messi scored his 400th goal against Valencia at Camp Nou. He was one-on-one with the visiting goalkeeper and tried to chip Diego Alves, who palmed away the effort. Messi made no mistake with the rebound, however.
