Argentine club Sacachispas donned masks of Lionel Messi in tribute to the star’s heroics in sending Argentina to the 2018 World Cup.
Messi was unstoppable on Tuesday as his hat-trick downed Ecuador 3-1 in Quito, sealing his nation a place at Russia next year.
And Sacachispas, who play in the third-tier Primera B Metropolitana, paid homage to the superstar with a very special team photo this weekend.
The club literally fielded ’10 Messis’ against Comunicaciones on Saturday, with all their outfield players donning a mask with La Pulga’s face.
Nuestro único héroe en este LÍO!
“Our only hero in this MESS!” accompanied the photo, with only the goalkeeper showing his real face as Messi soaked up the thanks from Sacachispas.
