LONDON - So you thought you had a world-beating replica shirt collection? Well, we hate to be the bearers of bad news but Lionel Messi’s is better.
The Barcelona forward posed with his son Thiago in an Instagram post on Tuesday, surrounded by some of the top names in the game.
There are headline stars – Thierry Henry, Raul, Iker Casillas, Francesco Totti, Pavel Nedved, Philipp Lahm and Sergio Aguero to name a few – as well as some lesser lights.
Manuel Lanzini’s West Ham shirt takes pride of place next to Messi’s Argentina shirt, while some British fans might not be familiar with Udinese winger Rodrigo De Paul or Youssef El Arabi, of Qatari outfit Lekhwiya.
There are, however, no English players’ names in sight – or a jersey with ‘Ronaldo’ on its back.
