Messi good

BARCELONA football ace Lionel Messi has won the FIFA Ballon D’Or.

Beating his two Spanish teammates, Xavi and Iniesta, the Argentinean forward took home the prize at the awards ceremony in Zurich on Monday.

The 23-year-old star won the award last year as well.

He scored a staggering 60 goals for club and country in 2010.

He said: “I’m surprised to win but pleased to be here with my friends.”
