Lionel Messi showed incredible patience with a fan after Argentina’s 7-0 win over Curacao.
The Argentina team were given a hero’s welcome when they played in Buenos Aires for the first time since their World Cup triumph.
Messi was the star of their 7-0 win, scoring a first-half hat-trick and surpassing the 100-goal mark for his country, becoming only the third player ever to achieve this feat.
The players did a lap of honour after full-time, showing off their World Cup trophy to the fans.
One supporter had the opportunity of a lifetime to take a selfie with Messi but couldn’t get her phone to work. She hilariously managed to video the awkward encounter which has since been uploaded.
Imagine trying to get a selfie with Messi and you end up getting this video instead 😅🐐
He was so patient 💙
