Kid mascot misses out on hand shake with Lionel Messi, looks heart broken :(
As Argentina came out for their match against Bosnia-Herzegovina at the Maracana on Sunday, there was an expectant youngster getting ready to be one of the mascots at the World Cup.
It looks from the footage that Messi is heading over to the youngster and when the Barcelona forward puts out his hand you can see things going swimmingly.
Except, Messi is aiming to shake hands with the referee.
Leaving the kid mascot looking crestfallen.
No blame should be attached to Messi – we just feel desperately sorry for the youngster :(
Vine and longer video below of a heart breaking World Cup moment…
