I have not seen that remarked anywhere, but it is true. Messi, then just 18 years old, came on in the 75th minute against Serbia and scored in the 88th minute.
So, after 2 games in 06, Messi had a goal in 15 minutes played. After 2 games in 2010, Messi has 0 goals in 180 minutes.

He has still been super dangerous though.
