Lionel Messi Saves Little Boy From Security Embarrassment

Lionel Messi has put smiles on the face of a little boy when he touched down in Montevideo ahead of Argentina’s crucial World Cup qualifier with Uruguay.

 MailOnline reports that as Messi arrived at the team’s hotel in Montevideo Uruguay on Monday, a boy attempted to meet his idol, only to be dragged away by security as he came within a few metres of the Barcelona forward.

But the Argentine forward demanded security to let the upset child come to meet with him after which the Argentine hugged the little boy and took photographs with him.

Lionel Messi showed this kind gesture as Jorge Sampaoli’s squad continued their preparations for two crucial matches ahead of the Russia 2018 World Cup qualifier.

The match could go a long way to deciding if his side reach next summer’s World Cup. But despite the important task at hand, the Barcelona forward still had time to make the day of a young supporter.
