Lionel Messi turns 31 today and he’s been looking pretty happy in training with Argentina as they prepare for their crucial World Cup clash with Nigeria.
The Barcelona star has been pictured smiling and joking around with his team-mates who have to win on Tuesday if they are to stay in the competition.
Ahead of that clash he’s been sent loads of happy birthday messages from past and present Barcelona stars and of course from his wife - here’s a few of the best.
Suarez: “Happy birthday 31st, mate! Enjoy your day. I’ll always support you and wish you the best, my friend.”
