A video of Argentina captain Lionel Messi’s interview as a boy went viral after he led the side to their third FIFA World Cup win on Sunday.
The viral video was shared by football club Newell’s Old Boys in which Messi played as a child. In the interview, he was asked if he knew he was named man of the match after scoring two goals in the match. He replied with “No”.
Messi then talked about his performance in the match.
“The ball came from Federico Rosso Griggini gave it to Lucas, Lucas gave it to me and I scored it,” the prolific footballer said. He dedicated his goal to his family members and fans.
The Lucas that Messi refers to is likely to be lifelong friend Lucas Scaglia, a cousin of the skipper’s wife Antonela Roccuzzo. He met her at Lucas’ house.
