Argentina superstar Lionel Messi had one crucial miss on Sunday, and it came before he even stepped on the field for his team's World Cup win over Bosnia-Herzegovina. While standing in the tunnels before the match, a young fan approached Messi and tried to shake his hand. But the 26-year-old walked right by the youngster without noticing him. Take a look in the video above.
While the pre-game snub made some Internet headlines, Messi told reporters on Monday that he didn't realize the kid was there and he "would never do such a thing." Messi then made sure to make up for the miss, tracking down the kid on Tuesday and making his day.
