This Tuesday, on the premises of the Argentina soccer team, a rather peculiar photograph was taken, which soon went around the world. A young man approached with a banner whose message could not go unnoticed: “Messi, forgive my mother, I did not know what I was doing, my name is Cristiano“.
Gastón Edul, a journalist for TyC Sports, was in charge of taking the photo and making it viral. The young man is uniformed in the colors of the Racing Club de Avellaneda team.
The aforementioned media portal reported that the boy is 11 years old, He is a River Plate fan and a Racing youth. And although he could not see Messi, surely the Argentine star has seen his message.
Argentina will face Peru this Thursday and will seek to take a giant step towards the Qatar 2022 World Cup.
