Messi Used His Celebration Against Sevilla To Raise Pediatric Cancer Awareness

Lionel Messi's celebration against Sevilla was meant to raise awareness and money for a pediatric cancer center in Barcelona.

Those watching Barcelona throttle Sevilla 3-0 Wednesday may have noticed Lionel Messi's curious celebration following the first of his two goals.

Messi slid two fingers across his cheek like he was putting on war paint. 

The celebration was intended to help raise awareness and money for a pediatric cancer center in Barcelona.
