days, players | Leo Messi
His country's all-time leading goalscorer, he became the youngest Argentinian to play and score in a FIFA #WorldCup during the 2006 edition. 'La Pulga' propelled AFA - Selección Argentina to the Final of the 2014 World Cup, where he earned the adidas Golden Ball award.
“I hope we get something against them and he’s going to play, so it’s going to be something good, a memory to play against Messi. He’s one of my idols so I look up to him. He’s so many people’s idol in the world so he’s a player you like to play with, to learn something, of course, so I will be happy to play against him. Of course, after 90 minutes, we’ll see what happens and hopefully we’ll get something.”
