Today we look at five of football's biggest superstars before they were famous, including Juventus midifelder Paul Pogba and FC Barcelona attacker Neymar.
These players have faced many challenges in their careers, and driven along many bumpy roads to get where they are today.
Lionel Messi was, without a doubt, born with ability, but as a child, the Argentine faced physical problems that could easily have left him feeling uninspired at times. Against all odds, though, Messi kept his head down and his eye on the ball, and could very well go down as one of football's best ever players.
Cristiano Ronaldo also did not have it easy growing up, but like Messi, his love for the sport saw him go on to reach heights that many might not have thought possible.
