"Messi just went to the pub by repping Argentina's training kit."

"Messi and De Paul dancing."

@Abu_1274 tweeted:

"Love seeing this."

@juicetrtl fell in love with the song Messi was jamming to:

Argentina players show Messi respect

Messi is the captain of the national team. Beyond that, he is the leader and the idol of most of the group, which has helped the team's unity to achieve their goals, Sports Brief reported.

After the match against Panama, the former Barcelona captain was seen ordering his teammates to go in a certain direction with a finger gesture. They all moved immediately like an army, according to a video circulating on Twitter.

The show of respect in the video comes as no surprise. Goalkeeper Emiliano Martinez in 2021 claimed he would give his life to see Messi achieve his goals for the national team, as reported by 90min.
