The clip showed the three kids on the sideline watching Thiago with big smiles on their faces as he delivered the corner kick.

He wasn’t satisfied with his delivery, though, kicking the air twice after his pass didn’t find any of his teammates.

Thiago joins Inter Miami's youth team

According to CBS Sports, Thiago joined Inter Miami’s under-12 team roster last August.

The media outlet reported that former head coach, Phil Neville's son Harvey and David Beckham’s son, Romeo have both also come up through the youth ranks of the Herons.

Football runs in the blood of the Messi clan, as Thiago’s younger brothers, Mateo and Ciro have also inherited their famous father’s love for the beautiful game.

The three boys can be seen playing football before and after Inter Miami’s matches this past season.

Messi’s first season with Inter Miami was a huge success, to say the least.

The Argentine star helped the club win their first-ever trophy in the Leagues Cup, scoring 10 goals and dishing out four assists in his first tournament in the United States.
