The fascination for Lionel Messi usually generates surprising situations. A new episode was generated this Tuesday at the Ezeiza campus, where the National Team trains. A child went to the door and showed a surprise poster that went viral and went around the world.
The image was released by the journalist Gastón Edul, from TyC Sports, who covers the alternatives related to the team led by Lionel Scaloni and the situation occurred in the previous Thursday’s game against Peru and after another very good performance by Leo, in this case against Uruguay, a rival who scored a goal.
The poster in question is brief but describes a rivalry typical of this era of football, involving Messi and the only professional with whom he can be compared in terms of records and statistics, Cristiano Ronaldo.
“Forgive my mother,” says the boy who dedicated his poster to Messi.
“Messi, forgive my mother. I did not know what I was doing, my name is Cristiano,” said the nice poster that the little Cristiano, such is his name, held in the vicinity of the venue where the blue and white prepares the game against Peru.
According to TyC Sports, Cristiano is an 11-year-old kid who plays for Racing Youth and is a River fan. And indeed, the mother gave him that name in homage to the Portuguese footballer. In the midst of this infatuation that Argentina lives with its public, and especially with Messi, the boy asked his father to take him to Ezeiza to show him that poster at 10. Of course, he wanted to see face to face a la Pulga, who complied with the training guidelines and remained focused inside the facilities.
