Leo Messi's Argentina is already classified for the round of 16 of the World Cup in Qatar after beating Poland 2-0 and finishing first in the group. Despite missing a penalty, the '10' albiceleste was one of the most outstanding players of the game and once again made his team dream of big goals after a bad start to the tournament.
Messi's stickers. The exzaulgrana is the player everyone is looking for on the pitch, but also outside. Since weeks before the World Cup, achieving your Panini sticker or 'figurine' has become quite a feat in Argentina. Proof of this are the multiple reactions of children (and not so children) who have gone viral after obtaining the precious treasure.
A gesture of solidarity. Taking into account what Messi's sticker means today, the gesture of a child who gave the 'figurine' to a friend of his who did not have it becomes more relevant. This is how the Twitter user @oliviakcrs explains it, who is the aunt of the generous boy.
Extreme care. However, far from putting it in the sticker album, the winner has decided to take care of it and pamper it before the games as if it were a voodoo doll.
"I'm going to eat my hottie with kisses. He made her bed so she could rest for the game," you can read in a WhatsApp story of the child's alleged mother. In the image, we see how the chrome rests on an improvised bed accompanied by a paper that asks not to disturb Messi.
In numbers. The publication has had a great impact on Twitter with nearly 130,000 'likes' at the time of writing these lines, in addition to more than 8,500 retweets.
Top comments. "That I get him out of bed at game time. I'm being 100% serious" and "My son says goodbye to his Messi picture every day when he leaves for school and in the afternoons he comes to say hello. He is 7 years old And the day Messi came out, the whole neighborhood noticed!" , are some of the most prominent comments.
However, the responses that predominate are memes and that of users who share other ways of taking care of Messi's chrome.
