Barcelona’s Lionel Messi Enjoys International Break By Attending Wizards V Pacers NBA Game

Lionel Messi is making the most of the current international break as he attended the NBA game between Washington Wizards and Indiana Pacers last night as a guest of honour.

The Argentinian, who is quite the wizard himself, takes on El Salvador on Saturday evening in the capital with his country before travelling to New Jersey on Tuesday to face Ecuador in back to back friendlies.

And it seems Messi has traveled to DC a few days early as he was pictured at last night’s game between the Wizards and Pacers as a guest of honour.

The official Washington Wizards Instagram page posted a photo of the superstar holding aloft his own branded Wizards basketball shirt with the caption:

Our honorary member of the #Wizards for the night, the one and only Lionel Messi
