‘You’re my Idol!’ Neymar wishes Barcelona teammate Lionel Messi ‘Happy Birthday’ via Instagram. Just in Time!
Yesterday was Lionel Messi’s 27th birthday, which he celebrated today with a brace in Argentina’s win over Nigeria, completing the Albiceleste’s perfect group performance.
Many Brazil teammates wished Messi a public happy birthday, though notably no Spanish Barcelona teammates posted (they are mourning their World Cup exit to be fair, and it’s not exactly an obligation!).
But his Barcelona strike partner and social media mogul Neymar made sure to get his best wishes in, with a special Instagram picture of the pair together at the Camp Nou.
Ney included the message, ‘Happy Birthday, Crack! You’re my idol!’, tagging Leo in the message.
Funnily, Neymar got the message in just in time, 19 hours ago, which would have been very close to midnight on the 24th-25th, meaning he got his message in just in time.
Better late than never!
