This adorable kid was such a fan of Argentine soccer player, Lionel Messi, that he made his own jersey out of a trash bag and marker. An image of him went viral as people spread the word to help him get his own actual Messi jersey.
Thanks to the Afghanistan Football Federation and UNICEF, he finally got a real jersey, signed by Messi.
UNICEF wrote in their Facebook post that it's important to bring hope to kids through sports:
The right to play and practice sports promotes the well-being of all children, especially the most vulnerable trapped in emergencies around the world.
