Iran Captain Asks Messi for his Jersey Before the Game (Video)

Lionel Messi

This is how larger than life Lionel Messi has become, his opponents are grateful to just be on the same field as him.

Before his team was set to face soccer giants Argentina, Iranian captain Javad Nekounam asked Lionel Messi for his jersey. Normally I would scoff at this but considering the circumstances (the fact that he may never see him again), it is understandable.
