Lionel Messi Adidas F50If you had to name the greatest thing about Argentina, what would it be?' 

You’ve certainly got a lot of choice. The Andes mountains, Ladislao Biro – inventor of the ball point pen, gauchos, writer Jorge Luis Borges, the tango, Eva Peron, rugby player Hugo Porta and Maradona to name but a few.

However, in current football terms, if you were asked the same question, chances are many of you would plump for Lionel Messi.

We would too, which is handy seeing as we are giving you a chance to win a pair of signed Lionel Messi football boots.


We’ve got a pair of the Argentine international’s Adidas F50’s, signed by the young superstar and ready to go to a new home.

To enter this great competition all you have to do is purchase any item from the Footy Boots Shop and your name will automatically go in the hat.

There’s no minimum price rule, and the competition is open up until 10th December 2008.

And, if you feel the need to go back and make further purchases, your name will be entered in to the competition as many times as you flash the cash.

Good luck.
