The most adorable viral Messi video: Children can’t contain their excitement at seeing the PSG star

One of the standout images of this past week’s games in the Champions League came about when Paris Saint-Germain took to the pitch to play their match against Maccabi Haifa.

There, a group of child mascots were thrilled to see Lionel Messi in person and ran to hug him.

They were part of the group of children who usually accompany the players to listen to the Champions League anthem, and they got excited when they saw the Argentine appear.

One of them asks for a hug from a distance, another blows him several kisses in the air. There is another boy who can only stand there with his mouth open, while a little girl goes straight to hug Messi, with their reactions perfectly encapsulating what football is all about.

Their reaction has gone viral and the video quickly garnered millions of views after being shared by UEFA.

PSG’s second Champions League victory

Despite going a goal down during the early stages of the game, PSG bounced back to claim a 3-1 victory, with goals from Neymar, Kylian Mbappe and Messi helping the Parisian team prevail over the Israeli side.

PSG now top Group H following their wins against Juventus and Maccabi Haifa, with Portuguese club Benfica their next opponents.
