On November 16, 2003, a little-known Argentine by the name of Lionel Messi made his Barcelona debut with a 15-minute cameo in a mid-season friendly with Porto.
Barcelona took on Porto in the inauguration of the Estadio do Dragao, which had been built ahead of the following summer’s Euro 2004.
Porto ran out 2-0 victors, with Messi squandering a couple of half-chances to score. What became of him? We’ll never know. But we’ve taken a look back at the Barcelona XI that started ahead of him.
