Boy With Famous Messi 'Plastic Bag' Shirt Finally Meets His Hero

We've all seen the brilliant picture of a small Afghan boy wearing a homemade blue and white plastic bag as a Messi shirt. It first appeared on our screens in January, and resulted in young Murtaza Ahmadi receiving a signed Argentina shirt from the man himself. Now, only a few months later, he finally got the chance to meet his Barcelona hero.

Before Barcelona's friendly in Qatar, Murtaza met Messi and the rest of his Barca teammates, and then walked out on to the pitch hand-in-hand with Messi for the start of the game. Take a look at the brilliant footage below.
