Lionel Messi is one of the best footballers in the history of the game and is also arguably the greatest of this generation. Messi is compared a lot with Cristiano Ronaldo with whom he has had an on-field rivalry for a long time. Lionel Messi has been a champion player for his club FC Barcelona where he has been a superstar.
Lately, the four-year-old Mateo Messi was seen enjoying a game of football and after scoring a goal he carried out his father's signature style celebrations which were adorable and included cuteness as well as innocence. The video of Messi Jr. imitating his father was posted by his mother and Lionel Messi's better half Antonella Roccuzzo on Instagram.

Soccer body CONMEBOL suspended Lionel Messi from international matches for three months because of accusations of corruption he made at the latest Copa America. The South American body had also fined the superstar a sum of USD 50,000 for his comments after Argentina's 2-1 win against Chile in the third-place playoff of the tournament in July. Lionel Messi and Argentina can still appeal the decision, which stops the striker from playing in four friendlies this year. The 32-year-old will not play for Argentina matches in September against Chile and Mexico, plus another two in October versus Germany and another adversary to be picked. Neither Lionel Messi nor Argentina's soccer association has made comments about CONMEBOL's decision. Lionel Messi is already suspended from the first match of the South American World Cup qualifiers next March because of the apparently undeserved red card he received against Chile.
