Video: Messi takes the ball from Kaka:

Here's a quick video clip:

It's not much to look at you might think. And it's so brief. But in this little moment we have both reality and symbolism.

The reality is that Messi is not a one-dimensional skill player. He has desire. He wants the ball back. He will work hard, chase after it. Tackle! Yes tackle.

The symbolism is that Messi has taken the ball from a former Best Player - Kaka won the FIFA World Player award in 2007.

So Messi is both taking the ball and taking power in the pantheon of football greats.
