Soccer legend Lionel Messi and the Argentinian national soccer team are in Washington DC this week for a friendly against El Salvador on Saturday.
After taking in a Wizards game earlier in the week, Messi met with Alex Ovechkin— one of Messi’s biggest fans– to exchange jerseys. Ovi totally fanboyed.
Check out the inscription on the jersey: To Leo Messi, From Ovi :).
He wrote on Instagram: “Just wow!!!the best!!!!! @leomessi !!!!”
Totally geeking out.
