Lionel Messi Argentina

Lose another final, perfect time for a selfie!

After Argentina lost in the last seconds against Germany at the 2014 World Cup, Lionel Messi and Co were destined to pick up their first Copa America title in 22 years. 

Obviously, Chile didn't read the script and after kicking lumps out of Messi they managed to take them to extra-time and penalties. 

With Messi netting his first goal with ease, his team-mates managed to let him down (again) with Gonzalo Higuain launching his penalty into orbit at the most costly of times.

Chile won the shootout 4-1 and lifted the cup and poor Messi looked like he'd gone 12 rounds with Mike Tyson. So what better time than to grab him for a quick selfie, which is exactly what a young Chilean kid did!  We're sure the Barcelona man looks absolute thrilled in that picture... definitely not one for the mantlepiece! 

Still, big respect to the kid who had the cajones to do it!
