Argentina national team arrived in Montevideo where Barcelona star Leo Messi and co. will play a crucial World Cup qualifier against Uruguay early on Friday morning European time.
Plenty of people gathered in front of the hotel to greet the Argentina players and possibly have a picture with some of the stars. That was exactly the plan for a young fan who sneaked past the security to get closer to Messi for a photo.
A member of the security team immediately pulled the kid away from the Barcelona superstar, but the Argentine star did not exactly appreciate the way young boy was manhandled and invited the boy back to him.
He then greeted the youngster who spent a couple of seconds chatting with his idol before running away in tears. Presumably tears of joy.
