Using a plastic back and a few markers, Ahmadi made a jersey to honor his favorite soccer player. Not only did the jersey receive tons of love from the DIY population, the image went viral and eventually caught the attention of Lionel Messi himself.

Messi, with the help of UNICEF, sent the then five-year-old a legit jersey, complete with autograph.

No more plastic bags.

But that wasn’t the end of the story.

Thanks to the Supreme Committee for Delivery & Legacy, the agency in charge of planning the 2022 World Cup in Qatar, Ahmadi finally got to meet his hero!

Los Sueños se hacen realidad ? #Messi y #MurtazaAhmadi ❤

A spokesman for SC told reporters, “Murtaza’s dream was to meet his hero. We are in a fortunate position here that we were able to bring them together. It’s about a kid and his dream. That’s it. That pretty much sums up the power of football.”

But that wasn’t all, Ahmadi was invited onto the field to take a photo with Barcelona.


Ahmadi even got to make the official ball placement in the middle of the field.


And when it was time for the game to start, Ahmadi decided he was ready to take on the pros.


Ahmadi joined Barcelona as they were getting ready to start the game.

Messi stepped in to let Ahmadi know that there was a front row seat waiting waiting for him.


But Ahmadi wasn’t about to walk away from his hero.

Finally the referee jumped in and made the most heartwarming ejection soccer has ever seen.


Announcers couldn’t get enough of the Ahmadi, saying, “he obviously thought he was going to play on the pitch, but never mind.  He’s going to get a great view for the remainder of the game.”

It started with a plastic bag, some markers, and a whole lot of heart…

… but Ahmadi got to experience his dream come true.

Messi with Murtaza. Dreams do come true❤️?❤️? #messi #murtazaahmadi

In a short statement, Ahmadi told the SC, “I’m very happy to have met my hero. It is a dream for me. I can’t wait to see Messi at the game, it will be the first time for me in the stadium.”

A Jenni Rivera Classic Gets Remade By Chiquis And Natalia Jiménez


A Jenni Rivera Classic Gets Remade By Chiquis And Natalia Jiménez

Earlier this week, Natalia Jiménez of La 5a Estación and “La Voz: Kids” fame released a Jenni Rivera tribute album titled “Homenaje a la Gran Señora.” Why Jenni Rivera? The Spanish pop singer told Billboard that she wanted to combine her love of Jenni Rivera with her desire to sing Mexican rancheras. The 34-year-old singer also told Billboard that her admiration for Jenni Rivera’s strength inspired her to work on the album: “[I]t’s a very strong album for strong women — women who are not afraid to stand up to men. I love that message. That’s what my music is about too.”

The 12-track album features duets with Jenni’s brother, Lupillo Rivera, and her eldest daughter, Janney “Chiquis” Rivera. Chiquis teams up with Jiménez on “Ovarios,” one of Jenni’s signature tracks.


Earlier this week, Chiquis took to her Instagram to post a clip of the song and to thank both her mother and Natalia Jiménez:

“There aren’t enough words to describe what my heart feels this moment. Today marks four years from the day that changed my life forever. Although it’s a difficult day, not just for my family but for all of the my mother’s fans, it’s things like this that make me smile because #LaGranSeñora continues to be a badass. A thousand thanks to Natalia Jiménez for this tribute!!! It’s a huge honor. I love ALL of the album. You rock girlfriend!!! Thanks for making me a part of it. I love you!”
