Talk about rare footage, here is a 12-year-old Lionel Messi back in 1999 during a trip to Argentina’s Villa Carlos Paz at the end of his seventh grade school year.

As the video will show,  the young Barcelona star enjoyed go kart racing and dancing with his fellow classmates. Heck, Messi even kicked the ball around a bit during a pickup match.

Watch and enjoy.
