The second episode of Unisport World Tour takes us to Rosario in Argentina where Lionel Messi was born and grew up. In the episode we visit Messi’s old house in Las Heras neighbourhood where Joltter gets to show off some freestyle football skills in the hood of “Pibe de Barr10”. Messi started his football career in a local team called Grandoli before moving to Newell’s Old Boys, another local team from Rosario. We got to go to the Newell’s Old Boys youth teams’ training ground – and Joltter was once again ready to take some free kicks and score a few goals in his adidas Messi Boost street shoes.

Newell’s Old Boys also took us to their home stadium, the Estadio Marcelo Bielsa, and we finished the whole thing off with a training session with the talented young kids at Newell’s Old Boys.

Lionel Messi’s story is an amazing one and we’d love to hear what your thoughts are about the FC Barcelona and Argentina superstar! Leave us a comment below and we’ll get back to you.
