Lionel Messi is arguably the best player in football history.

The Barcelona captain has won it all, both domestic titles and individual honours. But there's one award Lionel Messi has failed to win in his football career.

And that's the FIFA Puskas Award!

Let's have a look at this break down below:

The FIFA Puskas award is an individual award which was established on October 20, 2009, to honour the player that scored the best goal in a calendar year.

Since its inception, Lionel Messi has been nominated for a record seven (7) times, failing to win the award to date.

Lionel Messi has enjoyed a glittering career in football. He is the only player in world football to win a record 6 Ballon d'Or awards.

La Liga best forward - 7

La Liga medals - 10

Copa del Rey medals - 6
