.Argentine club Sacachispas donned masks of Lionel Messi. This was in tribute to the star’s heroics in sending Argentina to the 2018 World Cup.
Most note-worthy was Messi’s hat-trick last Tuesday as Argentina downed Ecuador 3-1 in Quito. This amazing feat sealed his nation a place at Russia next year.
And Sacachispas, who play in the third-tier Primera B Metropolitana, paid homage to the superstar, Messi, with a very special team photo this weekend.
The club literally fielded ’10 Messis’ against Comunicaciones on Saturday. All their outfield players donned a mask with La Pulga’s face.
Consequently, perhaps on his next visit to Argentina, Messi could pass through Villa Soldati and lend Sacachispas a hand – a few goals like those which downed Ecuador would be more than welcome.
